MADHYA PRADESH Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was allegedly caught on camera slapping and pushing his security guard during a road show while campaigning for civic body elections.

The purported video went viral two days after the incident took place in Sardarnagar town of Dhar district on Sunday. Accusing Chouhan of being drunk on power, the opposition Congress demanded that the Chief Minister be booked for assaulting a public servant on duty.

The CMO did not react to the video when reached.

Leader of the Opposition, Ajay Singh, said the Chief Minister should be booked under Section 353 of IPC for slapping his security guard and for preventing him from doing his duty. “He not only hit the guard from behind but also pushed him, thereby humiliating him in public,’’ he alleged. “If he thinks security guards are an impediment he should not accept security but he has no right to insult the guard who is only doing his duty.”

BJP spokesperson Hitesh Bajpai was quoted by PTI as saying that the incident was being wrongly interpreted. There was a huge crowd around the Chief Minister and the security guard stepped twice on his injured foot. The Chief Minister only pushed the guard to protect himself in what was a knee-jerk reaction, he said.

    He belongs to same background of aggression. You must have the memories of Satyam scam. This whole party is filled with "Gundas". He is just one of them.

          Its not his fault as he is doing what a corrupted and arrogant leader is supposed to do. But is ours who send these kind of peoples and party to powers in spite of their wrongdoings. Its high - time we should be more careful of what we choose and what we decide when it comes to elections in a democracy.

            What wonderful observations! I have never ever heard of a Chief Minister behaving like a GOONDA! Yes, majority of Indians need such politicians! The most ungrateful Indian citizens abuse the family which sacrificed many of its members in the service of the nation. Sir, irrespective of your party affiliations, I invite you for publicity purpose to view my video - Homage to Pandit Nehru - in . Thank you.

            If BJP CM slapped and pushing a policeman he is a nationalist, but the opposition leaders do the same they are anti- nationalist, this is BJP philosophy.

              I have never heard of a CM in Independent India who pushed and slapped his security person! This shows how the nation has fallen down. Sir, away from the subject, for publicity purpose, I invite you to watch my video - Homage to Pandit Nehru - in . Thank you.
