Areas like CBD Belapur and parts of Kalamboli and Uran in Navi Mumbai witnessed anti-SEZ violence on Thursday as Shiv Sena organised a protest, led by former Lok Sabha speaker Manohar Joshi, against state government’s plan to occupy land for a SEZ project

The Sena had planned a rasta roko and jail bharo andolan at Konkan Bhavan, in CBD Belapur, demanding that the State government withdraw its orders pertaining to land acquisition for the SEZ project. Nearly 8,000 protestors smashed vehicles, targeting both private and public transport, during the protest.
