Mumbai: It has not been even two weeks since Indore BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya thrashed a government official with a bat. His actions drew a lot of criticism from all spheres. Now, in a similar incident, Maharashtra MLA has thrashed an Engineer, only this time he is from Congress.

Nitesh Rane-son of former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Narayan Rane poured mud over an Engineer while his supporters intimidate him. Shockingly, he along with his supporters even tied the engineer.

What exactly happened:

In the viral video which is doing rounds on social media, Nitesh Rane can be seen pouring a bucket full of mud on the head of the engineer. The engineer is surrounded and intimidated by Rane’s supporters. They do not let him escape as well. A few seconds later, they tie him to the bridge with a rope. All this while, Nitesh Rane is shouting and abusing the engineer. Apparently, the engineer had arrived at the bridge on Gadnadi in Kankavli to inspect the potholes. He has been identified as Prakash Shedekar.

“Arrogant officers need to be taught a lesson”:

While he has been drawing criticism from all corners, Rane, however, does not regret his actions. Rather, he said that he will continue to monitor the work with a “stick in his hand”. He further said that people from the area had given up their land for the road to be constructed. “The condition of this road is so bad. It is my duty to look after my people,” Nitesh Rane said. “These officials are arrogant and they need to be taught a lesson,” he added.

“I apologize”: Narayan Rane

Sensing the anger being built against Nitesh Rane’s act, his father Narayan Rane promptly apologized. The former Maharashtra CM said, “This behaviour is wrong. The protest over the highway issue is correct but this violence by his supporters is not correct. I don’t support this.”

Not the first time:

Well, Nitesh Rane is a repeat offender. He is known for getting violent after losing his cool. In 2017, during a meeting, he had thrown a fish at a government officer.

The VIP sons of senior politicians resorting to hooliganism is nothing new. Recently, on June 26, BJP legislator Akash Vijayvargiya attacked an Indore Municipal Corporation officer. He beat the corporation officer from the bat. Akash Vijayvargiya was arrested and later was granted bail. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also expressed resentment over this matter.

PM Modi condemned the party leader Kailash Vijayvargiya’s son, Akash Vijayvargiya, saying, “He can be the son of anyone, such people should be expelled from the party. Modi remarked during the meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party in Parliament.
