Shiv Sena MLA Anil Kadam, who had allegedly abused women staff at a toll-booth near Pimpalgaon Baswant on Mumbai-Agra national highway two days ago, submitted his resignation to party chief Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday, sources said.
The Niphad MLA gave his resignation to Thackeray at the Ojhar airport in Nashik in the morning, while the latter was on his way to Shirdi to address a rally, Shiv Sena district unit chief Jayant Dinde said.
"Owning the responsibility of the toll-booth incident, Kadam tendered his resignation," Dinde said.
Video footage aired by a private news channel had shown Kadam abusing the all-female staff at the booth. Police said Kadam apparently lost his cool because the staff demanded toll from him, while the MLAs are exempted from toll. He was travelling in a private car at the time.
An all-party protest march led by former MLA and senior NCP leader Dilip Bankar, had been taken out over the incident yesterday at Niphad in the district.
