MNS leader in the legislative assembly Bala Nandgaonkar blamed NCP for the incidents.
"Raj saheb is on a state-wide tour (during which) he is bound to criticise the government and his opponents. Raj saheb targeted Ajit Pawar and he also responded. Such criticism is nothing new. However, throwing stones at our leader's convoy and women workers getting hurt in police lathi charge is simply not done," he said.
On the attack by his partymen at NCP office in Ambernath, Nandgaonkar said MNS workers had merely reacted to the action of the ruling party. "It is upto them to stop. Our's was a reaction to their action," he said.
Shiv Sena spokesman and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Raut said since the Home portfolio was with NCP, it was its job to prevent violence and maintain peace.
