Lok Sabha elections 2019: BJP supporters again chant Modi slogans during Urmila Matondkar’s campaign
Mumbai: A group of BJP supporters chanted slogans during a roadshow of actor and Congress candidate Urmila Matondkar in suburban Malad Tuesday, police said.
This was the second time Matondkar, who is pitted against the BJP’s Gopal Shetty in Mumbai North seat, faced slogan-shouting supporters of the saffron party. A group of BJP supporters arrived as Matondkar was riding a van along Daftary road in Dindoshi, and started chanting “Modi, Modi” near her vehicle, a police officer said.
The policemen present at the spot kept Congress and workers away from each other to avert a clash, he said. After chanting slogans, the group left, he added. On Monday, a scuffle had broken out between Congress and BJP workers near Borivali railway station where Matondkar was campaigning. The actor then sought police protection, which was provided.
