A fight broke out between the workers of Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in an election office in Maharashtra’s Bhiwandi. The clash erupted after NCP district president Ganesh Gulvi went to lodge a complaint at the election office against the unauthorised display of banners of its ally – Sena’s candidate. A heated argument took place between the two sides, followed by a fierce fight, in front of the Election Commissioner. Allies of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government - Shiv Sena and NCP - have been at loggerheads with each other over Bhiwandi Municipal Corporation for a long time.
