The minister went there to attend Gouthama Buddha statue unveiling function organized by Dalit Sanghala JAC. As the stage suddenly caved in, she lost balance but escaped unhurt due to the presence of mind of her security guard who came for her help.
Eye-witnesses said the stage collapsed as it was jampacked. The officials heaved a sigh of relief as the minister escaped unhurt. However, later the minister unveiled the statue and spoke on the occasion. (NSS)
