Aurangabad: Stones were pelted at the convoy of Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray faction) leader Aaditya Thackeray in Aurangabad’s Vaijapur area during the party’s Shiv Sanvaad Yatra on Tuesday evening.
The alleged incident occurred on Tuesday when Thackeray's program and Ramabai Ambedkar's procession took place simultaneously.
According to party officials, the procession was stopped by police due to the presence of some "anti-social elements," and some members of the procession allegedly began pelting stones.
There was also an attempt to obstruct Aaditya's car as he drove away, and some stones were thrown at his convoy, sources said.
“A stone fell inside the venue and some stones were also pelted at the convoy while we were leaving the venue. The crowd was raising slogans in support of local MLA, Ramesh Bornare. It was an attempt by some anti-social elements in the mob to create a rift between the two groups,” said Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Ambadas Danve.
Danawe in a letter to the Director General of police, Maharashtra requested him to seriously look into the breach and do the needful.
