Ashok Gehlot, the chief minister of Rajasthan, was upset after the public address system failed during a public engagement in Barmer, and he hurled a microphone to the ground. On social media, a supposed video of the incident appeared.
The chief minister, who was seated, threw the microphone in the direction of the Barmer district collector, who was standing to his left. The collector took the microphone in hand. The chief minister received a second microphone.
The chief minister’s office refuted a previous interpretation of the video clip that the district collector was targeted by the microphone.
“The mic was not thrown at the district collector,” an official said.
The event took place on Friday night at the Barmer Circuit House as the chief minister was speaking with a group of ladies to get their input on various government programmes targeted towards them.
The chief minister attempted to address the crowd, but the microphone broke, prompting him to hurl it in apparent frustration.
When the chief minister noticed other persons standing behind the group of women, he lost his control once more and asked them to leave.
“SP (Superintendent of Police), where are you? Collector and SP appear to be comparable, he said.
Gehlot was visiting Barmer for two days.
The women thanked the chief minister for raising the honorarium for anganwadi workers and informed him of the various benefits of the schemes during the ceremony.
