Daijiworld Media Network

Mumbai, Apr 15: A fight broke out outside the Borivali railway station between the supporters of Congress party's Mumbai North candidate Urmila Matondkar and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers during her campaign here on Monday April 15.

According to reports, while she was campaigning outside Borivali railway station, a group of BJP workers arrived and allegedly started chanting 'Modi, Modi' slogans. The Congress workers responded by raising 'chowkidar chor hai' slogans.

In a twitter video that has gone viral, a man wearing a checkered shirt is seen chanting ‘Modi, Modi’ when Matondkar arrives for campaigning. The crowd also joins him in supporting Prime Minister Modi. At around 20 seconds, Congress supporters can be seen walking towards the BJP supporting crowd while shouting ‘chowkidar chor hai’. Urmila can also be heard asking them to calm down. The sloganeering soon escalated and some of the BJP and the Congress workers came to blows.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Urmila said, "We were peacefully addressing people and from nowhere 15-20 people came and started shouting slogans. I didn't react to it and thought these things keep on happening and signaled them to let go. But they all started vulgar dancing and using abusive language. They probably wanted to scare the women who were walking near us... Then a fight broke out and they even assaulted the women. From the first day I am saying their politics is of hatred. I won't let this happen in Mumbai."

Expressing shock at the incident, Urmila later tweeted that she has filed a complaint and sought police protection over the incident.

"Shocked at the blatant violation of code of conduct and hostile acts by BJP workers. I was constrained to lodge police complaint for my own safety and to save the dignity of my female supporters," she tweeted.

    Politicians are sitting high and enjoying extreme high life and the best of everything at peoples' cost. Poor foot soldiers, I mean the common voters get carried away, get fooled and fight with each other, hurt and kill one another in the name of politics and their party bosses. They even worship the politicians and treat them like Gods. In return they get petty incentives like food, small money, gifts and liquor. This is the reality of dirty politics in India. The corrupt bosses are manipulating the innocent, poor common citizens. The innocence and ignorance of our common man is to be blamed for this sad state of affairs in India.
