BJP MP Kirit Somaiya alleged that Shiv Sainiks tried to kill him. Somaiya even wrote a letter to the Mumbai Police Commissioner asking him to investigate the incident.
“Shiv Sena workers tried to kill me,” Somaiya said. Police till yet, have arrested 13 people in connection with the assault, which was done on Somaiya.
The incident occurred at Mulund after Sena workers allegedly disrupted a programme organised by Somaiya wherein an effigy of corruption mafia in MCGM was to be burnt to mark the festival of Dussehra.
The Shiv Sainiks objected to the effigy burning as they are in power in MCGM and tried to stop the programme.
However, police had intervened and brought the situation under control. MCGM is ruled by the Sena-BJP alliance for the last 20 years and civic polls are scheduled early next year.
Somaiya, an MP, from Northeast Mumbai constituency, had earlier said that he will continue his fight against the mafia-raj and corruption in MCGM.
