In freak incident, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker from Gujarat fell into a drain during a demolition drive in her constituency.

The incident happened on Monday in the morning when Poonamben Maadam, who is the Member of Parliament (MP) from Jamanagar constituency, was visiting a slum which was about to be demolished.     

According to a report by NDTV, Maadam was standing on a slab of cement covering a large open drain, nearly 10 feet deep, when the slab caved in.
