Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday condemned party leader Kailash Vijayvargiya's son Akash Vijayvargiya for attacking a municipal official with a bat during a demolition drive on June 26. At a meeting of the BJP parliamentary party, PM Modi said such people should be expelled from the party without exception, "no matter whose son".

Modi said "We do not want any leaders who spoil the party's image. Whosoever's son, such leaders should be removed from the party."

"The PM was very upset. He said nobody has any right to misbehave or take the party for a ride or show arrogance in public. He used a very strong statement and said that any such act is unacceptable," BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy told.

Modi also slammed party leaders for giving a rousing welcome to Akash Vijayvargiya after he was released from jail and said "Those who welcomed him, such leaders should also be sacked from the party."

In a video clip, the 34-year-old was seen chasing the official and beating him with the bat as policemen watched. The video was widely shared on social media and was condemned by rival parties. Akash Vijayvargiya was arrested and later granted bail.
