BJP MLA Dilip Shekhawat was greeted by a man with a garland of shoes in Madhya Pradesh’s Nagada Khachrod. The incident happened on Monday evening when Shekhawat visited a village in his constituency while canvassing for the upcoming assembly elections.

A man sporting a cap in BJP colours came forward to garland the sitting legislator. However, it took less than a second for Shekhawat to realise that it was a garland of shoes around his neck.

In a video released by news agency ANI, Shekhawat was seen angrily throwing away the garland and assaulting the youth.
