Pune, 5th January 2024: The third video of BJP MLA Sunil Kamble from this morning has emerged, revealing a shocking incident. In the video, Kamble can be seen assaulting both a policeman and an NCP official at Sassoon Hospital. Another video has now surfaced, capturing the ongoing controversy. MLA Kamble has stated that he will personally take action against the District Collector for a breach of privilege.
MLA Kamble expressed his dissatisfaction with Collector Dr Rajesh Deshmukh for not including his name on the cornerstone of the program held in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar in Pune today.
Kamble questioned Deshmukh about the absence of his name, to which the Collector responded, “Your name has been included; you should verify the information.” This video has since gone viral.
Earlier, Kamble allegedly slapped a policeman and an NCP office-bearer during a program at Sassoon Hospital attended by Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, bringing him into the spotlight.
Kamble, a Bharatiya Janata Party MLA representing Pune Cantonment Assembly Constituency, is in his first term. Previously, his brother Dilip Kamble served as a BJP MLA from the same constituency and was a former Minister of State.
Kamble has a history of being a corporator for many years in the Pune Municipal Corporation and served as the Chairman of the Standing Committee. He has also faced accusations of verbally abusing a female officer in the Pune Municipal Corporation, with an audio clip circulating on social media and in the news.
Regarding the altercation with the NCP official, Kamble claimed that he was cornered multiple times and informed the police about the situation. He insisted that he intervened to rescue the person rather than resorting to violence.
Explaining the incident with the policeman, Kamble clarified that he pushed the person and did not physically harm him. He emphasized that there was no intention to assault and attributed the situation to a lack of protocol at the government event. Kamble expressed his displeasure to the District Collector about the omission of his name from the cornerstone, asserting that the claim of beating someone due to a lack of acknowledgment is untrue.
