There was a dispute on Facebook
According to the police, three days ago there was a protest in the collector under the banner of All India Brahmin Mahasabha. This demonstration was organized by Rajat Sharma.

The controversy between the two over Facebook posts and comments has steadily grown. In this debate, both had also threatened to see each other.
