At the same time, the BJP released its fourth list of candidates this morning, in which former supporters of Maharashtra, Prakash Mehta, were upset with their supporters angry at not getting BJP ticket from Ghatkopar in the car of party candidate Parag Shah from this constituency.
A police officer said the incident occurred at 11 am when Shah was going to file nomination papers for the October 21 assembly election.
He told that Shah along with a group of BJP workers were going to the premises where the nomination papers were to be filed, when people who had declared themselves supporters of Mehta also reached there and stopped Shah’s car.
Mehta won from Ghatkopar (East) in 2014, but the ruling party did not give him a ticket this time. Mehta’s supporters were angry with this.
The officer said that he broke the glass of the car and also damaged other parts of the vehicle. He told that during this time Shah did not get hurt. He sat in the car till the crowd dispersed.
Mehta’s supporters shouted slogans against Shah and held him responsible for not getting tickets to his leader. The official said a crowd gathered near Shah’s car and road traffic was disrupted. The police then intervened and dispersed the crowd.
