Uddhav-led faction`s office in Thane razed as part of anti-encroachment drive
The Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) officials in Thane demolished eight shops, one of which housed the local office of the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray), as part of an anti-encroachment drive, an official said on Sunday, reported the PTI.
However, local Sena leader Ramakant Devlekar alleged that the demolition action that took place on Saturday was due to his refusal to join the faction of Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, according to the PTI.
He said, “other illegal structures in the area were not touched.”
Sena workers held a protest against the demolition.
Meanwhile, KDMC ward officer Kavita Hile said that the structures were encroachments and the razing was carried out after following all civic rules, including issuing notices, as per the PTI.
