MNS workers vandalise toll booth in presence of Raj Thackeray
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers on Thursday vandalised a toll booth here after an argument with employees
The incident was triggered after workers at the booth asked MNS leader Kshagupta Pimple to pay the mandatory road tax, according to sources.
When contacted, police denied the incident.
Pimple is the vice-president of Kalyan unit of MNS and was on her way to Kalwa police station to lodge her complaint for the loss of her mobile phone, sources said.
The incident happened as one of the staffers at the booth allegedly abused MNS chief Raj Thackeray, which resulted into the clash.
Pagare is reportedly arrested.
“I appeal to people of Maharashtra not to pay toll till the state government implements changes in the toll policy,” Raj told.
The government may recover the cost by attaching properties owned by MNS chief, said Home Minister RR Patil
