The scuffle took place when the Congress legislators were staging a protest in the hall near main entry of the House after the assembly was adjourned for the day by Speaker Sitasharan Sharma following ruckus by Opposition over the Vyapam issue.

Congress MLA Sunderlal Tiwari and other members were talking to mediapersons demanding Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's resignation over the scandal. BJP members, including MLAs Sudershan Gupta, Rameshwar Sharma Gupta and Manoj Patel, raised slogans like 'Congress ki dadagiri nahi chalegi' and tried to disrupt the Congress legislators' interaction with the mediapersons.

This led to a scuffle among them in which Congress MLAs Rajneesh Thakur and Madhu Bhagat fell down along with some media persons.

Later, talking to reporters in the media room, Tiwari alleged that an attempt was made to scuttle their voice and challenged BJP to have a fight in the open to settle score. "I was dragged and prevented from speaking to the media. They caught me from behind and threatened that you raise too much voice on Vyapam scam and we will see you," he further alleged.
