Neemuch (MP): A video has surfaced showing a crowded makeshift stage collapsing during Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s roadshow in Manasa town in Neemuch district on Monday.
The roadside stage was erected by Sachiv Sangh, an organisation representing panchayat secretaries, to welcome Chouhan.

A video of the incident has surfaced on social media.
Police and administration officials were not available for comment on the matter.
