The Congress was holding a media briefing at the AICC. Congress spokespersons Pawan Khera and Randeep Surjewala were seated and were responding to questions from the media. Khera was answering a question from the media.

Suddenly, the man seemed to appear out nowhere and spoke in a loud voice demanding that Yogi Adityanath should not be called Ajay Singh Bisht  The man also raised Vande Mataram slogans. He also unfurled the Tricolour as he chanted slogans in praise of the country. 

The man was soon taken away by the security after Khera and Surjewala called for them.

Watch the video above.

'To call Yogi Adityanath Ajay Singh Bisht is to insult Indian culture, Bharat Mata Ki Jai, Vande Mataram!"

The man who created disturbance in the media briefing of Pawan Khera said, "Is this (AICC) a government office, why can't I go in there? My first demand is that those whose parents or partners are foreigners should not be allowed to contest elections in India as it is a matter of national security."
