Senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya has downplayed the incident where his son and BJP MLA from Indore, Madhya Pradesh Akash Vijayvargiya hit a civic official with a bat and refused to condemn his actions. He even said that he was unaware of the "circumstances during" the incident.
"Whatever has happened has happened as per the law. What is there to say?... I don't know the circumstances during which it happened, so I can't comment.
The Bengal BJP chief had even earlier evaded Republic TV's questions on his son's arrest.
"I do not have any knowledge of this incident. I have no comment to make on this issue." He maintained the same response despite repeated attempts to get a reaction from him.
Instead of expressing regret or remorse, Vijayvargiya after getting bail from the jail said that he did not regret and prayed to the God that he did have to do 'batting again'. I will try to approach situations with the lessons learnt from Gandhiji
"I am happy to be out of jail as I can continue with my mission of stopping misconduct and atrocities against women and senior citizens. I decided to do (assaulting the officer) looking at the situation," he said.
He spoke at length about how what it did was for the benefit of the people and reiterated his allegation agains the officer of misbehaving with a woman resident.
