Shiv Sena will have to pay for the damages.
State Energy Minister Sunil Tatkare said this after the Shiv sainiks vandalised eight offices of Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution across Thane, to protest power cuts and exorbitant bills.
“The load-shedding situation hasn’t changed since six months. Shiv Sena’s agitation was just a political stunt. We suffered losses worth Rs 22.9 lakh and have filed a complaint with the Thane police,” said Tatkare.
