'Shiv Sena workers tried to kill me': Kirit Somaiya

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

MP Kirit Somaiya today alleged that Shiv Sainiks tried to kill him, and wrote to Police Commissioner asking him to unravel the plot.

"workers tried to kill me," Somaiya alleged, referring to the attack on him on Tuesday in suburban Mulund.



Police have so far arrested 13 people in connection with the assault, in which some workers were injured.

The assault took place in suburban Mulund after Sena workers allegedly disrupted a programme organised by Somaiya wherein an effigy of 'corruption mafia in MCGM' was to be burnt to mark the festival of Dussehra.

The Sena activists objected to the effigy burning as they are in power in Municipal Corporation of Greater (MCGM) and tried to stop the programme.

However, police had intervened and brought the situation under control.

MCGM is ruled by the Sena-alliance for the last 20 years and civic polls are scheduled early next year.

Somaiya, the former chief, has aggressively targeted Sena and repeatedly alleged that the civic body was riddled with "mafia-raj and corruption".

The MP, who represents the Northeast constituency, had earlier said that he will continue his fight against the "mafia-raj and corruption in MCGM".
