However, the reason behind the fight between the two leaders is not yet known. The two men were seen arguing before they started hitting each other.
Both Yadav and Kunjir are relative lightweights in the Congress. Kunjir and his supporters were later escorted out the police. Shortly after the chaos, MP Chief Minister Nath reached the site and unfurled the tricolour.
