Auto Driver (Face circled) beaten up by BJP members for asking Tamil Nadu BJP Chief Tamilisai Soundararajan about petrol price hike on 16 September, 2018.

Chennai  (IANS) An autorickshaw driver here was allegedly assaulted by BJP members when he asked the party’s state President about rising oil prices.

The Bharatiya Janata Party’s Tamil Nadu chief, Tamilisai Soundararajan, was addressing the media here on Sunday when an autorickshaw driver, Kadir, who was standing behind her, asked her about the rising fuel prices.

While Sundararajan ignored the question and kept facing the camera unperturbed, BJP members near her pushed him back and later pulled him away.

Soundararajan had earlier complained to Tuticorin airport authorities about a young woman, Sofia, who shouted anti-BJP slogans inside an aircraft.

The police took Sofia into custody but got bail the next day.
