First, he introduced himself as an MLA, but did not produce an identity card as there was no identity card. We informed the marshal. Who called the police,” an official told news agency PTI.
Verma said he was ‘sent by Governor CV Anand Bose’ and was allowed inside the assembly. After listening to such things, it is believed that he is mentally unstable. The reason why all these words are one. Then the point is how did the security personnel allow this disrespect to come. The incident raised questions about the security of allowing Verma into the lobby. The police are investigating the matter.”We found that the man had lost his wife and son a few years ago, due to which he was facing some problems,” officials said. He lives with his grandson.
