The video clearly shows Ajay Chandrakar slapping the table in front of him while laughing while state BJP chief Dharamlal Kaushik can be seen grabbing Ajay Chandrakar’s hand, an indication asking him to stop laughing.
The opposition party took note of this behaviour at condolence meet and slammed the BJP ministers for having a good laugh at such occasion.
“The top BJP leadership had been ignoring Atalji when he was alive. Now this act of senior BJP ministers has clearly shown how much respect they have for their veteran leader,” said state Congress general secretary Shailesh Nitin Trivedi.
“This act is highly objectionable,” said Shailaesh Nitin Trivedi..
“If BJP leaders can not respect Atalji, then they should not at least disrespect him. BJP and Raman Singh’s (expression of) love and respect for Atalji after his death is nothing but just a show and drama,” he added.
