The commuters in Maharashtra might have a hard time on Wednesday as the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has announced that it will block all national highways in the state from 9 am.
MNS Chief Raj Thackeray has assured that normal life will not be disrupted due to their protest. “We will not disrupt life in any of the cities in Maharashtra but all the highways will be blocked from 9 am tomorrow (Wednesday). I have told MNS workers not to indulge in vandalism.”
However, even as the MNS chief promised an end to vandalism of toll booths, party workers attacked a toll in Panvel on Tuesday. They had earlier attacked a toll in Uran also.
The party will march from Girgaum chowpatty to Mantralaya on February 21 over the issue. “Government says its open to talks. That is not enough. I want a time bound programme,” he said.
