However this claim is fake.

In the viral video, it is an officer from the PM’s office who stopped Chief Minister Shivraj Singh but it was Bhopal Collector Avinash Lavania. Giving information, he said that,” “I completely refute the matter that is going viral in the social media that Hon’ble CM Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan was stopped by the security officer during the visit of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji.”

He further said, “In reality, an important message related to the program was given by me to Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, which he listened to and immediately proceeded forward”.

Apart from this, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh also posted the video related to the program on his official Twitter account and accused Congress of lying.

Therefore, this claim is fake.
