Jaipur: A heated exchange of words between Chandrakanta Meghwal, MLA from Ramganjmandi area and Phralad Gunjar from Kota North on Saturday has yet again brought to fore fractions within the party’s ranks.
In a district-level appraisal meeting in Tagore Hall, Gunjal and Meghwal lashed out at each-other, each saying the other – tum do kodi ke ho (you are worth of two pennies). Meghwal later told the media persons that it was not for the first time that she has been humiliated by Gunjal. She had even considered lodging an FIR against him, but held back when Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje assured her of action in the matter and ensured that it wouldn’t be repeated.
“I will now complain to the PM and the BJP president Amit Shah,” Chandrakanta Meghwal was quoted as saying.
The heated exchange of words began when Phralad Gunjal, a senior politician in the area, raised his voice, pointed at Meghwal and said. “These people worth of two pennies whom we brought into the politics are now behaving like this.”
It infuriated Meghwal who stood up and replied that she was worth of two pennies, you are also worth of the same. If he (Gunjal) has problem of me being in party, he should let me know,” Meghwal further said.
He added that if she was worth of two pennies, problem should be to her parents and husband and not to the MLA of her party.
When the two MLAs were exchanging barbs, agriculture minister Prabhulal Saini, MLA Bhawani Singh Rajawat, district collector Gaurav Goyal and several other politicians were present. Someone made the video of the incident. It went viral on social media.
In the meeting, Rajawat said that the underpass being built near NH-76 in Bandha Dhampura area had no relevance. Gunjal objected saying that it was a budget announcement by the chief minister Raje. Meanwhile Chandrakanta Meghwal argued that an underpass was needed to be built in Modak area.
“The underpass is being constructed where it’s not needed in the first place,” Meghwal said.
After an heated argument, Gunjal got agitated and made the remark about ‘do kodi ke log’.
