Congress in Gujarat has accused a BJP worker of charging three-times the train fair from migrant workers and beating one of them up for objecting. The incident allegedly took place in Surat. In a video shared by Congress leader Saral Patel on Twitter, shows a man accusing BJP worker Rajesh Verma of charging inflated ticket fares from migrants.
“I had gone to get the tickets. We have given him Rs 1.16 lakh, but he is saying he will not give our money or tickets. He is selling tickets for Rs 2,000 each, when I tried to object Rajesh Verma and his people hit me with a wooden stick,” the man can be heard saying in the video.
“Rajesh Verma hit me the most, my brain is not working properly from the pain. I have proof that we gave him the money. We all have tokens [for the train ticket], but he refuses to give us tickets,” the bleeding man said.
