AAP protests NCP attack in Mumbai
The Aam Aadmi Party has held protests in Mumbai after the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) vandalised the AAP's office in the city on Saturday.
The police has detained AAP leader Mayank Gandhi when he was heading for the NCP office in suburban Juhu to protest against the attack.
According to the police, 20-25 activists of NCP, led by Prithiviraj Maske (north-west district NCP president), and Amol Matele (president of NCP students wing), vandalised the AAP office at Chakala and tore up and burnt the posters of its supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday.
"Today at around 2.10 pm around 40 NCP goons attacked AAP Mumbai office in Andheri," AAP tweeted on Saturday.
Meanwhile, a case has been registered against 23 activists of NCP for vandalising AAP's office, media reports said.
The attack by NCP came after AAP leader Anjali Damania targeted senior NCP leader and Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, saying that Mumbai citizens were paying high electricity charges due to corruption and inefficiency of the state power ministry.
