After thrashing AI staffer, now Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad in verbal spat with cops
Mumbai, April 20: Shiv Sena Parliament Member Ravindra Gaikwad allegedly had a heated argument with cops over “non-functioning” of ATMs at Latur in Marathwada region, police said.
Videos of the alleged heated argument between Ravindra Gaikwad, his supporters and police personnel at Latur in Marathwada region, have gone viral on social media.
In the visuals, Gaikwad is purportedly seen arguing with a police officer, during a protest over non-functioning ATMs at Latur.
The Lok Sabha member from adjoining Osmanabad constituency, Ravindra Gaikwad, who reached Latur yesterday, had sent his aide to withdraw money from an ATM at Latur.
However, the aide returned empty-handed, saying the ATM had run out of cash. This happened with a few other ATMs, prompting the Sena MP to go out and stage a protest with his supporters outside an ATM.
When policemen arrived and requested Gaikwad to discontinue his protest as it was hampering the vehicular traffic, the Shiv Sena MP allegedly shouted at them, police said.
Giving his version of the incident, Gaikwad said, “There is no money in the ATMs for the last 15 days. What should we do?”
