Shiv Sainiks in various parts of Maharashtra staged protests against rebels, while pro-rebel Sainiks burnt the effigy of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut as well as shouted slogans in favour of rebel MLAs.

After rebel supporters blackened the posters of Uddhav Thackeray, Sena supporters in Pune held a shoe hurling protest against the rebel MLAs.

The loyalists of the party president and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray took out a two-wheeler rally in Mumbai and held protests in parts of Pune against the dissident leaders on Sunday.

Sena workers and its local functionaries, led by the Pune city unit president Gajanan Tharkude, staged 'jode maro' or shoe hurling protests at two places; outside Balgandharva auditorium and in Kothrud.

On Saturday, Eknath Shinde said Sena workers should understand that he was fighting to save the party from the clutches of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA).

Shinde's appeal came after Sena workers loyal to party president and Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray staged protests against the rebel MLAs led by him by defacing their banners, hurling stones in some places and vandalising the office of an MLA in Pune.
