News 9 tweeted a video clip earlier today (10 September), which shows a AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) leader slapping a party worker in Belgavi, Karnataka for mistakenly demanding an increase in fuel prices, during a protest against high fuel prices.
AAP has been speaking against the Congress, saying that it has no moral authority to call for the strike, since they are nothing different compared to the BJP. But AAP leaders have been seen protesting across various cities.
This is the said video in question.
Congress has claimed that its Bharat Bandh is being supported by 21 opposition parties. Among them are Janata Dal (Secular), Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Samajwadi Party (SP), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Communist Party of India (CPM), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
