Shiv Sena workers disrupt BJP function over Marathwada and Vidarbha statehood issue

Nashik: Activists of women's wing of Shiv Sena today disrupted a rally addressed by BJP leader and president of the state women's commission, Vijayatai Rahatkar, for allegedly supporting the idea of separate Marathwada and Vidarbha states.

Sena activists allegedly ransacked the pandal of the event in Bodhale Nagar locality. Officers of Mumbai Naka police station said complaints were registered by both the sides.

Rahatkar, talking to reporters earlier, had allegedly expressed support for separate states. State Advocate General Shreehari Aney triggered the controversy over the issue when he voiced support for separate Marathwada state in Jalna two days ago.
