BJP MLA Bhupesh Chaubey

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Bhupesh Chaubey from Uttar Pradesh today stood up on a chair at an election rally, caught his ears, and did a series of sit-ups on stage, asking his constituency for forgiveness.

Here's the video: 


The episode came as the BJP MLA addressed a workers' meeting in his constituency, Robertsganj in eastern UP's Sonbhadra, where he is going for re-election.

Speaking highly of the workers at the election rally, the BJP leader asked them to once again give him their blessings -- read votes -- just as they did in the 2017 polls.

"With folded hands, I am asking for your forgiveness," said Bhupesh Chaubey. Then he started doing sit-ups on a chair.

The public at the rally responded with loud cheers, shouting slogans and raising their hands in support of Chaubey. The BJP leader has been MLA in his constituency and reports suggest he came up against some voters' anger.

However his party seems optimistic that he will win. "Like in 2017, Bhupesh Chaubey will win the 2022 election with a huge majority," said Jharkhand's Former Health Minister and BJP MLA Bhanu Pratap Shahi. UP's Sonbhadra district borders Jharkhand.

"The enthusiasm of the booth label agent, the booth president and other booth in-charge workers who came to this conference is testimony to the fact that everyone here is like the party's family," added Bhanu Shahi.

The Robersganj constituency will vote on 7th March, in the seventh phase of the UP polls 2022. All Assembly election votes will be counted on 10th March.
