New Delhi: On Sunday, A farmer allegedly died of a heart attack at an election rally of leader Jyotiraditya Scindia of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh. The rally was held ahead of Madhya Pradesh by-polls scheduled on November 3.

The farmer named Jeevan Singh, collapsed on the chair at the rally when BJP’s Pandhana MLA, Ram Dangore, was addressing the rally, as per reports.

Mundi police station in-charge, Antim Pawar, said that the 70-year-old farmer, resident of Chandpur village, came to attend the rally on Sunday. But his condition deteriorated and he collapsed on the chair, PTI reported.

“He was taken to a hospital, where doctors declared him dead. Initial investigation revealed that he died of a heart attack”, he added.

People sitting around him dispersed hearing the news. But surprisingly, Scindia requested all present in the rally to maintain one-minute silence for him and resumed his speech.

His decision to continue the rally after the farmer’s death created a fresh controversy.

Madhya Pradesh Congress shared a video in Twitter where the farmer’s body could be seen lying on the chair and speech of leaders could be heard in the background.

“Farmer’s death in BJP’s rally, —speeches continued nonetheless; Today, a farmer died in BJP program, but the shameless leaders of BJP did not stop the program. The dead body of the farmer was lying and the shameless BJP kept applauding. Shivraj ji, Do not fear the public, fear God ..!”

“Congress is doing cheap politics even on sensitive issues, as usual. Even before my arrival in the rally, our ‘Annadata’ (farmer) had passed away. He was immediately rushed to hospital by the workers,” Scindia hit back at twitter.

“When I got to know of this tragic incident after reaching the rally I asked people to keep silence to pay tributes to the Annadata. Politics is medium of public service for me and I don’t want a certificate from Congress for this”, he added further.
