The atmosphere is only going to get more acrimonious and the BJP-Shiv Sena ties more strained.
Narayan Rane was arrested on Tuesday following his remarks that he would have slapped Chief Minister Thackeray for what he claimed as the latter's ignorance of the year of India's independence.
Narayan Rane was produced before the Judicial Magistrate First Class at 9.55 pm on Tuesday after the Police arrested him when his transit anticipatory bail application was rejected by the Ratnagiri sessions court earlier in the day.
The attack came in the wake of the arrest of BJP leader Rane, who was booked for his comment about slapping Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Narayan Rane claimed that Uddhav Thackeray allegedly forgot the year of independence during his August 15 address to the people of the state and had to check with his aides midway.
Narayan Rane was taken into custody by police in coastal Ratnagiri district where he was travelling as part of the Jan Ashirwad Yatra.
Union minister Narayan Rane is currently attending the Jan Ashirwad Yatra in the Konkan region and the police are headed to arrest him after multiple FIRs were lodged against him over his controversial remarks against Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjar Raut said, 'To impress BJP leadership, Rane has been attacking Shiv Sena and its leaders'
The protest comes a day after the passage of bills in Rajya Sabha amid charges of manhandling of opposition leaders.
