The centenary celebrations of the All India Yadav Mahasabha held at the BN Mandal Stadium in Bihar’s Madhepura on Monday witnessed a huge ruckus. During the programme, supremo Pappu Yadav arrived on stage to address the crowd, while supporters of RJD’s former MLA Raghuvanesh Yadav of Spool’s Papra Assembly chanted ‘Lalu Yadav Zindabad’ in opposition to Pappu Yadav. They started shouting slogans. Although Pappu Yadav continued to speak from the stage for the betterment of the Yadav community, the chanting youths were not letting anyone listen and were continuously chanting slogans of Lalu Yadav Zindabad.
He dropped the mic and left the stage.
It is being told that Pappu Yadav had no problem with Lalu Yadav’s sloganeering, but he was not allowed to speak. Angered by this, Jap supremo Pappu Yadav threw the mic and walked down from the stage. Meanwhile, the angry workers beat up the youth who was shouting slogans. A fight also took place during the program which lasted for hours. Later the matter cooled somehow. Actually, the program was organized in Madhepura under the banner of All India Yadav Mahasabha to unite the Yadavs in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, but chaos broke out during the programme.
The beating of the youth who raised slogans
Pappu Yadav first tried his best to calm down the young man but when he didn’t calm down, he took the mic and started to leave the stage. People on the stage also tried to explain to Pappu Yadav but he threw the mic and got down from the stage. After that, there was a stampede near the stage for some time. The supporters of Pappu Yadav beat this young man in a filmy way. Later he was rescued from the crowd by the people present and carried to the stage. People did not turn up for the program and most of the seats remained empty.
Khesari Lal also participated in the program.
Let me tell you that preparations for the centenary celebrations of Yadav Mahasabha were being made for a long time. The organizing board had expected around one lakh people to attend the event, but more than half the seats in the venue remained empty. Chaos was at its peak in the entire program. There was chaos on stage as well. Along with this, Bhojpuri singer Khesari Lal Yadav also participated in the program. A song was started to calm the commotion but the matter got confused after which the program was stopped.
