Fadnavis said, "the vehicles of Maharashtra being attacked is not right. I have spoken to Karnataka CM Bommai and he has assured me that he will look into the matter and initiate action. Our constitution provides everyone the right to live and work in any state. I will take up the entire issue with the Union Home Minister Amit Shah."

He said, "the matter is already subjudice in the Supreme Court and it is not right to act in such a way. I have also appealed to the people of Maharashtra that reaction to an action is not needed. If the vehicles were damaged there, it is unnecessary to react here in a similar manner."
