BJP city chief Mathkari gets into heated argument with NCP workers, accuses them of influencing Khadakwasla voters
The Khadakwasla assembly bypoll yesterday was fraught with tension and the police had to intervene after BJP members objected to certain actions of NCP workers at the Vastad Haribhau Pokle Primary School. The BJP activists alleged the NCP workers were influencing voters.
Matters went out of hand after BJP city chief Vikas Mathkari claimed that the police were silent spectators and were "allowing" NCP workers inside the polling booth at Dhayri.
