Gujarat MP flashing gun extremely disturbing: Cong

Oct 12, 2012

New Delh: The Congress on Friday described as "extremely disturbing" its Lok Sabha MP from Gujarat Vitthal Radadia's act of brandishing a gun to threaten the employees of a toll plaza in the state.

"Images which are being shown on TV are disturbing undoubtedly. There is no running away from it. We are a little circumspect and cautious before we pronounce judgment. The process of natural justice does entail us to to give him a chance to explain.

"We have asked the Gujarat PCC to send us a detailed report. It is extremely disturbing. I would be less than honest if I say I do not share...(that view)," party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters.

Radadia, apparently enraged at a toll plaza attendantasking him for the original I-card after his driver had shown a photocopy, was seen on national TV menacingly flashing his gun in front of the booth and repeatedly tapping the glass enclosure with the barrel.

Radadia, considered a 'strongman' in Saurashtra region, represents Porbandar constituency in Parliament.
