Vijay Joshi, an office bearer of Shinde's Shiv-Sena faction said, "The road in Manera village near SST College at Ulhasnagar camp number 4 has been in bad condition for many years and after the demand of the locals the Member of Parliament (MP) Dr Shrikant Shinde provided funds of 17 crores for this purpose. As MP Shrikant Shinde himself was coming to inspect the work of this road, I along with former corporator Arun Ashan went to inspect the road along with the workers. At this time, the sons of former corporator Vimal Vasant Bhoir of this area along with some companions attacked me and my workers. In this attack, one of my supporters got injured in the head. Even I was been beaten."
Joshi further added, "The video of this incident went viral on social media. I rushed to Vitthalwadi police station to file a complaint. At present no complaint has been lodged."
