Yadav's statement comes after an elderly-looking man was allegedly made to spit and lick his saliva off the floor as a punishment for entering the Sarpanch's house without knocking.
Speaking to ANI, Yadav said, "I totally condemn this act and such incidents will not be tolerated in the state. We will take strict action against the culprits. The people of the state should trust BJP and its members. We will see to it that incidents like these never happen again".
The man had gone to meet the village head to avail a government scheme.
In an amateur video, the man can also be seen being beaten up with slippers by at least two women. (ANI)
