Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sonali Phogat has landed in a controversy as a video fo her beating an official in Haryana’s Hisar district has gone viral. The video shows her beating Balsamand Market Committee Secretary Sultan Singh.
Sonali Phogat is a TikTok star-turned-BJP leader and had contested the 2019 Haryana assembly elections from Adampur and lost to Congress Kuldeep Bishnoi.
In the video, Sonali Phogat can be heard accusing Sultan Singh of abusing her. “Am I working to hear abuses from people like you? Do I not have the right to a dignified life. You …you have no right to live,” she says in an undated video.
Phogat then goes on to tell the police that Singh used “indecent, derogatory language” while talking to her earlier. Police officials were present at the time of the incident but they did not try to stop Phogat from beating the market official.
According to reports, Sonali Phogat and Sultan Singh earlier had a heated discussion as farmers alleged that Sultan Singh was creating hurdles in the procurement process.
In the video, Sultan Singh can be seen telling the cops that he has noted down everything Phogat asked her to do, including building a shed.
