The video of this entire incident has come to the fore, in one part of the video it is visible that when Vande Mataram was being sung in the House, all the people were standing except some councilors of AIMIM. After this the BJP councilors thrashed him.

Shadab Chauhan has said, “The incident of fighting during the swearing-in ceremony of mayor and councilors in Meerut is very shameful in a democracy. Listen with open ears, it is not necessary to say Vande Mataram or Bharat Mata Ki Jai in the constitution and why should we give proof of our patriotism to anyone? India belongs to all of us, it will run according to the constitution.
Shadab Chauhan also said that I want to tell the councilors that no mother’s son can force us to show patriotism and shout slogans.
On the whole matter, the police say that when Vande Mataram started in the swearing-in ceremony, some AIMIM councilors remained seated and protested. Which was opposed by other councillors. On the occasion of sloganeering and uproar, both the sides were separated by the police present on the spot.
