A video showing Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar getting hit on head by a Congressman during his recent visit to Ludhiana has gone viral. Jakhar is visibly infuriated in the video following which, his security immediately swings into action.

The Congressman, who seems to have unintentionally hit Jakhar, has been identified as Ravinder Singh alias Juggi Brar. He is considered to be a close associate of Member of Parliament Ravneet Singh Bittu as the latter addresses Juggi as “mama ji”.

The incident took place at the Guru Nanak Dev Bhawan during Jakhar’s maiden visit after he became party president. Juggi is seen standing behind Jakhar along with other Congressmen and personal assistant of Jakhar as the Congress chief addresses media.

Here’s the video:

Juggi’s hand could be clearly seen hitting Jakhar’s head after which, the senior leader gets offended and stops the media briefing for a moment to look behind. Juggi is then removed by personal assistant of Jakhar. However, Juggi can be seen arguing with the officials of Jakhar and even pushing them.

The entire episode took place in full public view and many video and mobile cameras captured it, only to circulate it like wild fire.

The video was shared by Congress leaders on different platforms.

A Congress leader, requesting anonymity, said, “After the incident, Jakhar even told his associates to bar people from standing behind him when the media briefings are held.”
