The journalist-turned-politician broke into tears while talking to deceased farmer Gajendra Singh's daughter Megha on a news channel. The “sympathy gaining” act after three days of the unfortunate incident has brought Ashutosh under the hammer of social birds.
"I couldn't save your father," insisted Ashutosh while crying.
Furthermore, he went on blaming Congress and BJP for doing politics over the sensitive issue. While he was weeping during the entire discussion, farmer's daughter sounded more compose and sensible as she asked for justice for her father. The daughter even requested politicians not to do pity politics over her father's unfortunate death.
