He himself and his supporters were heard asking ‘Why did you leave us?’ and ‘What will happen to the country now?’. Later he defended his action, especially if the act was genuine by saying that it was in no way a publicity stunt and he was crying because of the state of cleanliness and development of his area and the country under the BJP rule.
