Gujarat spokesperson for BJP Bharat Pandya on Sunday said that no BJP worker or members were involved in the birthday party in Mahisagar in which participants were seen celebrating with liquor. The video that went viral showed the birthday celebration of a youth, believed to be a local BJP functionary. It showed the youth cutting a cake with a sword and beer being thrown around in celebration. Pandya was reported as saying that BJP president Jitu Vaghani spoke to local leaders in BJP and they clarified that none of the participants were either BJP leaders or members and were not associated with the party. He also said that strict actions should be taken against those involved in the incident.

Media reports however said that the birthday celebration was that of one Kawan Patel. Some reports also said he was the party’s district convenor. The Congress was quick to react and questioned the Prohibition Rule in the state when BJP leaders could celebrate their birthday with alcohol.
