SAD, Cong leaders have verbal spat during live TV show

Bathinda: In an embarrassment to their party cadres, city presidents of Shiromani Akali Dal and Congress, during a news channel debate, turned abusive and finding the situation taking an awkward turn, the channel authorities had to stop the event midway.

A news channel had organised a debate about the development of the constituency with one guest each from the ruling as well the Opposition parties. Sudhir Bansal was representing the SAD and Mohan Lal Jhumba was there to speak on behalf of the Congress.

The event was being held in full public view at Hanuman Chowk, the heart of city. The two leaders first indulged in a verbal duel on the issue of threatening a grain market leader. Then, the claim and counter claims about the development of the constituency pushed them to hurl abuses at each other.

Amid supporters from both sides raising loud pitch slogans, the onlookers had to intervene and urge both groups to leave the place.
