Raghav Chadha even called the channel owner and asked him to sack the journalist. Chadha is AAP's co-in charge of Punjab.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and its Punjab co-in charge, Raghav Chadha, is facing the ire of the journalists after he threw the microphone of a journalist who had reached late in Chadha's press conference. The video of the incident is going viral on social media platforms.
Chandigarh-based journalist Taruni Gandhi has tweeted the 12-second-long clip of the incident. With the video clip, she wrote, "A video journalist got lil late, @raghav_chadha threw his mic on floor. He didn't stop here, he called channel owner to sack video journalist. Now they aren't in power here in Pb and see their #arrogance. Once God forbid if they are in power, Pb would be in hands of anarchists."
The MLA from Rajinder Nagar in Delhi is also the vice-chairperson of the Delhi Jal Board and national spokesperson of the Aam Aadmi Party.
On Saturday (January 8), another video of MLA Chadha went viral in which he could be seen demanding VIP treatment from the police personnel. The Bharatiya Janata Party's Sarabjit Kaur was elected Chandigarh mayor on Saturday (January 8). MLA Chadha had gone to meet her in her office. The police personnel posted in her office asked him to wait as she was busy with other work. This infuriated Raghav Chadha. He asked police personnel to get away and let him enter the chamber of the newly elected mayor as he was the MLA.
On Friday (January 7), Raghav Chadha was chased away from the press club in Jalandhar after allegations that he was selling the party tickets in Punjab. Chadha was to address a press conference.
The Election Commission of India announced Saturday that polling for the 117 seats of the Punjab assembly would take place in one phase on February 14.
