The former MLA however claimed that the entire event was misunderstood.
“Seems like, the journalist had come in front of our vehicle and were not moving ahead or back. In a rift of the moment, such an incident took place and I apologise for that I also assure that such incident won’t happen in the future,” said Yadav.
