Shocking Video: Shameless politicians come to blows over hoisting tricolour in Mussoorie
Dehradun: In an ugly, cheap and shameful incident, two politicians came to blows on Thursday over hoisting the tricolour to mark Independence Day in Mussoorie.
Trouble started when BJP legislator Ganesh Joshi and Mussoorie Municipal Chairman and Congress leader Manmohan Singh Malla climbed the podium on the ground and started arguing, insisting on unfurling the tricolour.
Both of them tried to snatch the rope and pull it to unfurl the flag, roughing up each other in the process, much to the embarrassment of the people around.
They kept on shouting while the people who had come for the Independence Day celebrations looked on.
Someone from the audience suggested they should stop fighting and unfurl the national flag together, but the appeal fell on deaf ears. When the dispute refused to die down, a child from the crowd was brought to the podium by the organisers to hoist the national flag.
