Ahmedabad: A BJP legislator in Gujarat was caught on camera kicking and thrashing a local NCP woman leader, who approached him for resuming water supply to her locality in Ahmedabad district. A video of the incident went viral on social media, prompting the Congress and the NCP to demand action against Naroda constituency MLA Balram Thawani. The ruling BJP also condemned the incident.

The woman, Neetu Tejwani, told reporters the MLA slapped her so hard that she fell down, after which he started kicking and thrashing her. A few days ago, Tejwani said, she had approached Balram's brother Kishore, a corporator, requesting him to not disconnect the water supply of her locality as the legal process to restore it was underway. She claimed Kishore, too, abused and hit her.
