After attack on Raj Thackeray, Mumbai on edge
Meanwhile, MNS MLA Ram Kadam issued an open threat to NCP leaders and workers if they continued to target Thackeray.
"We know how to give tit for tat. We believe in replying in the language people choose to speak to us. They (NCP leaders) have forgotten that they have to move in Maharashtra.... Their homes are in Mumbai," he said while speaking to a TV news channel.
MNS leader in the legislative assembly Bala Nandgaonkar blamed NCP for the incidents.
"Raj saheb is on a state-wide tour (during which) he is bound to criticise the government and his opponents. Raj saheb targeted Ajit Pawar and he also responded. Such criticism is nothing new. However, throwing stones at our leader's convoy and women workers getting hurt in police lathi charge is simply not done," he said.
On the attack by his partymen at NCP office in Ambernath, Nandgaonkar said MNS workers had merely reacted to the action of the ruling party. "It is up to them to stop. Our's was a reaction to their action," he said.
Shiv Sena spokesman and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Raut said since the Home portfolio was with NCP, it was its job to prevent violence and maintain peace.
