The workers of Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress created ruckus in Jaripatka and caused damage to the furniture at the office of BJP Corporator Viky Kukreja. The scuffle between BJP and Congress workers is learnt to have begun, when some workers approached Kukrejaâ€™s office with demand to resolve local problems.
The workers then exchanged blows, manhandled Kukreja and some other workers including women.
Senior BJP and Congress leaders including MLC Pravin Datke, Kunal Raut (son of Dr Nitin Raut) and others immediately rushed to the spot.
BJP workers then blocked roads and burnt tyres on main squares of the area. The shops and other establishments in Jaripatka area immediately lowered their shutters.
It appears that the incident was a fallout of discontent prevailing among workers of various parties, due to changes in areas of Prabhags (ward cluster) for the coming municipal elections.
Jaripatka police arrived at the spot to control the mob, immediately after getting information about the incident.
