Uttar Pradesh, march 25 : A livid Congress candidate Raj Babbar today lashed out at cops for videographing him during his campaign in Vijay Nagar area of Ghaziabad.
Actor-turned-politician Babbar, the congress candidate for Ghaziabad Lok Sabha constituency, lost his cool when he was addressing a gathering in a house located in Vijay Nagar area.
When Babbar was speaking to local residents, he noticed some policemen, including a sub-inspector, videographing him which made him angry.
“Jo aparad karne wale hain, unko to rokenge nahi… sharam nahi aati hai inko… aye din Ghaziabad ka naam badnam ho raha… Topi aur wardi pahane ke ghum rahen hain ye log (They (policemen) don’t nab those involved in crime… They should be ashamed of themselves. The image of Ghaziabad is deteriorating day by day. Despite this, they wear the uniform),” Babbar said.
Babbar said that he was not a criminal that policemen should videograph him during campaigning.
“Can I not appeal for votes in a house? Am I a thief or criminal? And is any case against me? So, why have they come to videograph me?” he asked.
Meanwhile, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Ghaziabad Dharmendra Singh said that an investigation into this matter has been ordered.
“We have seen video of the whole event. We have ordered a probe into this matter. If Raj Babbar is found guilty, strict action would be taken against him,” SSP told PTI.
Yesterday, an FIR was also lodged against BSP candidate from Ghaziabad Mukul Upadhyay for using loudspeakers at a meeting in Nasirpur in violation of the Model Code of Conduct.
