A video of BJP MP Brijbhushan Sharan Singh slapping a young wrestler twice has gone viral on social media, triggering a huge backlash.
In the video Singh could be seen slapping a young wrestler in Ranchi as he approached him requesting to be allowed to take part in the ongoing under-15 wrestling competition.
Singh, who represents the BJP from Uttar Pradesh’s Kaiserganj constituency in Lok Sabha, lost his cool and began to mercilessly slap the wrestler. The BJP MP is also the president of the QWrestling Federation of India.
The controversial parliamentarian was in Ranchi to attend the under-15 wrestling championship as the chief guest. The wrestler in question was disqualified from the competition for being overage.
He approached the BJP MP requesting him to be allowed to participate in the competition. This was when the VVIP BJP MP lost his cool and began to hit the young boy.
His action has earned him shame on social media where netizens are also mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
As instructed by @narendramodi , his MP started to train the wrestlers on the stage itself. Preparation for the next Olympics is at next level. #brijbhushansharansingh

उत्तर प्रदेश से भाजपा सांसद ब्रजभूषण शरण ने रांची में नौजवान कुश्ती खिलाड़ी का मंच पर किया थप्पड़़ों से किया 'स्वागत'। सांसद जी का गुंडई का बहुत पुराना इतिहास रहा है।#brijbhushansharansingh pic.twitter.com/xSgpvQQtz7

The arrogant MP, who is now being called a goon, has not apologised or issued any clarification for his criminal action.
