Few have also posted the scuffle is BJP Vs BJP which although is true but misleading as it’s not new, but a year old video
This is a year old video i.e. March 2019 from Uttar Pradesh. The argument was in between BJP MP and BJP MLA about a meeting on foundation stone of a project
Following screenshot from the video taken from different angle, published by Hindustan Times clears most of the facts
1. The date of meeting on banner is 06.03. 2019 i.e. it’s a year old.
2. The name plate of the man who used shoe has Sharad Tripathi written on it.
ANI UP tweeted “#WATCH Sant Kabir Nagar: BJP MP Sharad Tripathi and BJP MLA Rakesh Singh exchange blows after an argument broke out over placement of names on a foundation stone of a project”
