Solapur , Nov 13 : In the wake of a viral video of AIMIM leader Farooq Shabdi being showered with currency notes at an Eid event here, Shabdi apologized for the incident.
The AIMIM leader said the incident took place at a qawwali event organised at Solapur's Aasar ground on the occasion of Eid-e-Milad.
"I didn't shower money nor was I carrying any bundle of money with me. It was done by people who love me as I was invited as a chief guest for the event," he said.
During the recent assembly election in Maharashtra Farooq contested and lost from Solapur City Central.
