Jaipur: A heated argument broke out between Rajasthan Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra and Congress MLA Rajendra Pareek at a review meeting of developmental projects in Sikar district on Monday.
The meeting was convened by the minister in-charge of the district Shakuntala Rawat at the Sikar collectorate auditorium. Both Dotasra and Pareek are MLAs from the district. A video clip of the incident was widely shared on social media.
The argument started during a discussion on the issue of drainage and a flyover project when the Pradesh Congress Committee chief asked Pareek not to side with officials.
