A video and images of Congress MLA from Sillod allegedly beating up a farmer in Aurangabad has gone viral on social media, even as the Maharashtra government recently decided to waive the loans of farmers across the state.

Abdul Sattar Abdul Nabi and with supporters allegedly beat up farmers over a land dispute. The MLA, however, said he “had to take that step”.

“The land belongs to Dalit brothers, I don’t have any connection with it. At that time, the situation was such that I had to take that step,” he said.
