Bareilly/Barabanki (UP): BJP MP Priyanka Rawat from Barabanki, have been accused of threatening an ASP during a press conference in UP.
Rawat allegedly used foul language against ASP Kunwar Gyananjay Singh during a press conference on Friday, saying she would make him pay for all the clout he enjoyed during the previous SP government.
“I will get all the malai out, khaal bhi khichwa lungi (I will get all the illegal wealth seized, will skin you alive),” Ms Rawat, 31, allegedly told police officer Gyanendra Singh on the phone, shouting at him for “misbehavior,” according to a report in NDTV.
Alleging that Singh was shielding a murder accused, the 31-year-old MP threatened to make him pay for the arbitrary manner in which he worked and indulged in property dealing during the previous regime.
“They have reaped enough under the previous government. Khaal utaar denge if they do not work properly,” Rawat told reporters.
SP Vaibhav Krishna said the video of the press conference is being examined and if necessary, an FIR will lodged against the MP.
Rawat also said the situation has now changed and officials who do not bring a change in their working manner will be pulled up.
The incidents come on close on the heels of charges against BJP’s Saharanpur Raghav Lakhanpal that he had indulged in violence in a village and vandalised the residence of the area’s SSP.
