In a video that has gone viral on social media, Union Minister Ashwini Choubey was seen having a verbal exchange with a sub district magistrate (SDM) at Buxar in Bihar. The incident took place when the SDM stopped the convoy of the MoS for health and family welfare for allegedly violating the model code of conduct (MCC).
In the video, the minister was seen angrily reacting to the official who tried to describe the Union Minister about the Election Commission’s order. “What’s the issue? Who’s order is it. Send me to jail if you have to do something. This is my vehicle and you cannot seize it,” said the Choubey to the official.
