Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group, has reacted to a video being virally circulated over the social media on Wednesday. The video circulating on the internet was earlier posted by Nagaland's MLA Mmhonlumo Kikon, wherein it shows Nagaland Women Battalion pushing out a Mahindra Bolero out of a ditch, without any help from their male counterparts.
The undated video shows Mahindra Bolero, an SUV, being stuck in a drain; unable to move and function. This is when the Naga Women Battalion step up to pave the way, by pushing and lifting the SUV backwards, while a few others drag it from behind. Within seconds, the women manage to push the car out, making it all look easy. After accomplishing the feat, the women soldiers are seen celebrating this victory.
Anand Mahindra reacted saying 'not foolish to take on' with 'Naga Women Battalion',
Now I don’t know why the Bolero was in the ditch 😊 but I certainly am glad a few able-bodied women were around to rescue it! And yes, I’m never going to be foolish enough to take on a Naga Women Battalion! @MmhonlumoKikon https://t.co/Rmsviy20jd— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) August 28, 2019
The video was first posted on Twitter by Nagaland's MLA Kikon, tagging in multiple people including Anand Mahindra and Kiren Rijiju.

The video has gathered quite an appreciation and reactions. Apart from him, Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has also lauded the 'josh and power' of Nagalan's Women Battalion.
