Secondly, I challenge Kamal Walia or anyone else to show any video of mine where I am threatening or using filthy language against anyone,” said Rana.

The mother of the deceased, Kanti Walia, has demanded action SP City Prabal Pratap Singh for giving permission to celebrate Maharana Pratap Jayanti amidst tension in the city and also she has sought action against the people who applied for the permission.
