The BJP termed the incident as "very serious" and said the Congress should discipline its MPs in the poll-bound state. Radadiya's car was stopped by toll booth personnel at Karjan near Vadodara late Thursday night.

In their complaint to police, toll plaza personnel said the attendant asked for the MP's identity card and the driver showed him a photocopy. They said when the toll attendant asked for the original, Radadiya got angry and stepped out of the car with a gun in hand.

Radadiya has been caught on CCTV cameras strutting around his car with the gun and brandishing it at one of the windows of the toll plaza.
