Mumbai: Activists of Raj Thackeray-led MNS allegedly disrupted a press conference on Tuesday called by an outfit seeking statehood for Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. MNS is strongly opposed to any division of Maharashtra.
The VRAS leaders, fighting for creation of separate Vidarbha State, were to address media for highlighting demand for carving out Vidarbha State. While the VRAS leaders were about the begin the press meet, the MNS activists stormed the venue and started creating ruckus. They raised slogans of Akhand Maharashtra and were seen exchanging hot words with Vidarbha protagonists. The rampaging MNS activists stopped short of attacking the VRAS leaders but their menacing postures hinted their nasty plan.
It could not be verified whether the VRAS leaders continued with their press meet or the chaotic MNS activists prevailed. The details are awaited.
