In a freak accident caught on camera, Poonamben Madam, BJP MP from Jamnagar, Gujarat, fell into a 10-foot deep drain in Jalla Ram Nagar today while speaking to TV reporters.

A few slabs of concrete reportedly came unstuck, leading to the incident. The slabs also fell on the BJP MP, injuring her. Poonamben was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she is currently under treatment.

The incident, according to ANI, took place when she was speaking to a group of people during an anti-encroachment drive.

Fortunately for her, a fire brigade team was stationed nearby and quickly rescued the MP. She’s believed to be out of danger now.

The MP came in the spotlight in April 2015 during a ‘Bhagwat Katha’ programme in Gujarat’s, where the MP was seen dancing in a crowd where a massive number of currency notes were allegedly showered by the crowd.
