After the leaders spoke, the session was thrown open for questions from the audience. The first three questions and answers went on smoothly. Trouble erupted at the fourth question, reportedly asked by a Social Democratic Party of India activist. Addressing his question to Ramanath Rai, he asked, “You have been promising to arrest Kalladka Bhat but so far have not taken any action. You are cheating the minorities.”

At this, Congress and BJP started shouting slogans and one person, reportedly from the Bajrang Dal, demanded to know why he wanted to bring religious issues into a political debate. Congress members came to the defense of the SDPI member and said he had a right to ask the question. This led to further arguments, and chaos and confusion broke out in no time. A person said to be from SDPI, picked up a handful of mud and threw at another person’s face which further escalated the situation.
