Rupal Tadvi had been protesting for the last several years, alleging that the government did not give a piece of land promised to her family after her father Ashok Tadvi, who she claimed was martyred while serving in the BSF.

At Rupani's rally, Tadvi rushed towards the stage, shouting, "I want to meet him..I want to meet him." The woman was stopped by the police. A video had surfaced in which a group of police officers could allegedly be seen manhandling a woman.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi posted the video and wrote on his Twitter handle, "The arrogance of BJP is at its peak. 'The ultimate patriot' Rupaniji has humiliated humanity by throwing the daughter of a martyr out of the rally. Her family has not received any help for the last 15 years, all she got was hollow promises and humiliation. Have some shame, give (her) justice."

Taking note of the matter and also ensure that Congress does not score political points over the matter, Rupani was quick to order a slew of welfare measures for the family of the girl.
