Congress supporter Tehseen Poonawalla who was recently eliminated from Big Boss, today decided to create a Reality TV show like drama in Delhi.
After announcing a protest against Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman by wilfully misrepresenting her statement on rising onion prices, Poonawalla reached Delhi’s Vijay Chowk along with his supporters.
There he decided to protest by walking with a wheelchair to metaphorically allege that the common man has been crippled by the government. This protest though was deemed to be in violation of Article 144 and the Delhi police thus objected to it.
Poonawalla then decided to brazen it out by daring the Delhi police to come and arrest him.
When the cops finally came to detain him, Poonawalla kicked off a big drama by frantically protesting to the media while he was being taken away.
In the video, Poonawalla can be seen resisting the detention and at one point even went down on the ground to make things even more difficult for the cops.
He can ultimately be seen demanding to know what wrong did he do as he got dragged into the waiting police van.
