According to the reports, when BSP National Coordinator Ramji Gautam and former State President Sitaram were in the party office, some men barged into the office and dragged them out and blackened their heads.
Bharatpur BSP leader, Pooran Singh Parnami who was expelled from the party was present during the incident and reportedly among those who blackened the faces of the leaders. I spent about Rs 7.5 lakh. He told me that he will return it after the Lok Sabha polls but did not, said Parnami. I have all the bills. And when he did not return the money, I filed a police complaint here. Then I was subsequently expelled from the party. Moreover, they don't communicate anything to Mayawati, he added. Reportedly, Sitaram's face was blackened as he tried to save Ramji from the incident.
Meanwhile, BSP chief Mayawati took to Twitter and blamed Congress for the incident. 'The party took away six BSP MLAs and is now behind the attack on senior leaders and hurt the Ambedkarite movement, which is Condemnable and shameful', read her tweet.
