After a massive fight erupted between Madhya Pradesh Congress Minister Jitu Patwari and BJP MP Mahendra Singh Solanki, during the district planning committee meeting on Tuesday, BJP MP Mahendra Solanki lashed out at the Congress for suppressing his voice.

In conversation with Republic TV, the BJP MP from Madhya Pradesh narrated his side of the story and spoke about the fight between both the parties.

"The fight started when Congress Minister Jitu Patwari came to the meeting with some unofficial people. The sitting arrangement was also not as per the protocol. When I raised this issue, all the Congress leaders opposed it. The sitting arrangements were changed later. Congress leaders also didn't let me raise the topic of public welfare. A congress worker also started raising his voice against me when I raised the issue of land mafia," he said. 

Adding to his statement further he also alleged the Congress party of sending its workers to display black flags and raise slogans against him. "When I stepped out of the meeting, slogans were raised and black flags were shown to me."
