Pune: NCP, Sena Workers Clash Over Anti-Ajit Pawar Remarks

Pune, Jun 2 (PTI) Activists of Shiv Sena and NCP today clashed here during a demonstration staged by the latter to condemn an editorial in the saffron outfit's mouthpiece that allegedly carried derogatory remarks against Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.

The trouble started when Sena workers tried to prevent NCP activists from burning copies of Sena mouthpiece 'Saamna' at a city square, leading to friction between the two groups and intervention by police.

The activists dispersed after mild cane-charge by the police.

According to Sena Pune unit chief Nana Wadekar, about 25 party workers were detained by police, who used force to disperse the agitators.

The NCP demonstration was in response to the protest staged by Sena workers here on Tuesday in which an effigy of Pawar was burnt in reaction to his comments on Bal Thackeray, questioning the Sena chief's contribution to society.
