Chandrasekhar Sahu, Member of Parliament slaps party worker on stage, video goes viral

Berhampur: 25/9/19:Chandrasekhar Sahu, Member of Parliament of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) from Berhampur, has landed in a controversy after a video, in which he was seen slapping a party worker, has gone viral on social media.
The former Union Minister slapped a young party activist on stage in full public view during a party meeting held in Paralakhemundi of Gajapati district on Tuesday.
Sahu slapped Sangram Sahu, former Gajapati District Youth Congress president, who had attended the meeting to join the ruling BJD.
While the incident has been captured on camera, the activist tried to downplay the incident.
“The MP did not slap me but only chided by just touching my cheek just like an elder brother. I have known him since my student days and also joined BJD due to his blessings,” said Sangram.
However, the incident has invited criticism from the political opponents of the BJD MP.
