Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Maharashtra Legislative Council (MLC) member Gopichand Padalkar visited Pune's Indapur on Saturday to attend the 'OBC Elgar Melava,' an event organised by Maharashtra Minister Chhagan Bhujbal. The gathering also saw the participation of Rashtriya Samaj Paksha (RSP) leader Mahadev Jankar and various prominent OBC leaders from the state.
Post the event, Padalkar visited a protest site adjacent to the area where Maratha activists were engaged in a chain hunger strike, demanding reservation. Upon Padalkar's arrival at the site, the Maratha activists reacted aggressively, chanting slogans against the BJP leader and even hurling chappals at him. A viral video of the incident is being circulated widely on social media platforms.
However, a local publication reported that the Maratha activists refuted the accusation of throwing chappals at Padalkar, asserting that those responsible for the act were individuals affiliated with Padalkar himself.
