BJP leader from Haryana and Tiktok star Sonali Phogat made headlines when her video went viral in which she is seen beating an official with a slipper. The incident took place in the local Mandi of Balsamand village in Hisar district.
Sultan Singh, Secretary of Hisar Market Committee was on duty when BJP's Adampur Assembly candidate Phogat reached there to meet him and discuss the sale-purchase of crops. Phogat alleged that the official misbehaved with him and she reciprocated in this way in the heat of the moment. As per Phogat Singh used abusive language with her which is not acceptable. She also shared her side of the story on her social media platforms as clarification.
#fightforwomensrespect उसने मेरे मान-सम्मान को ठेस पहुँचाई व अमरादित भाषा इस्तेमाल की। कोई भी स्वाभिमानी महिला इसका जवाब एसे ही देती क्या इस देश में महिलाओं को सम्मान से जीने का अधिकार नहीं ? किसान के हक़ ओर महिला के सम्मान के लिए मेरी लड़ाई एसे ही जारी रेहेगी।— Sonali Phogat (@sonaliphogatbjp) June 5, 2020
