Chaos in Vasai

Chaos reigned yet again in Vasai as protesters turned violent  stoning public transport busses and lighting rubber tyres on fire. The police had to resort to lathi charge to control the crowd. Vivek Pandit the local MLA was on an indefinite hunger strike from March 2nd to protest against the inclusion of 53 villages in the Virar-Vasai Municipal Corporation (VVMC)

Vivek Pandit was shifted to the Thane Civil Hospital after his condition worsened.

Vasai was brought to a standstill with a curfew like situation and all shops closing down and no vehicles running on the roads in the afternoon today.

The Chief Minister of Maharashtra called in on Vivek Pandit from Kolhapur and said that he would convene an all-party meeting within 15 days to sort out the issue of delinking the 53 villages from the Virar-Vasai Municipal Corporation.

The agitation has since been called off and normalcy has returned to Vasai.

  1. I like you, you are great person but Unfortunately as always you have got the chronology wrong Please get your facts right before commenting anything you are a responsible citizen and i expect you to at least do a little research before commenting

    First it was inhuman lathi charge on innocent protester near vasai court

    Then few violent protester damaged public property

    Lastly police arrested Old ladies school kids returning from their SSC, HSC exam and few youths who had nothing to do with the protest

    Surprisingly when questioned by Mr Tony Dabre the Nalasopara police they were unaware under which act or following who’s order they had arrested these innocent people, Infact DySP claimed that he had seen these kids stone the buses but fortunately these kids were appearing for their board exam

  2. Was not there to get the complete picture.. this is based on reports heard and read online through sources. Makes me wonder why dont you guys post the picture from your perspective online or on media.
