ControversyAbusing a government official [7]Aaj Tak

A team of CREDA (Chhattisgarh State Renewable Energy Development) officials demolished the statue of the 10th Prime Minister of India, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in August 2022 which was on the Atal Chowk in Saraitoli village in Kunkuri tehsil of Jashpur district, to install high mast lights. A few days later, a video circulated on social media which showed Vishnu Deo Sai abusing a person on the phone and threatening to bury him alive after beheading him. The person was later identified as a CREDA (Chhattisgarh State Renewable Energy Development) official named Sandeep Banjare. When Sai was criticised for his language, he apologised for the incident.
