Unidentified men vandalised the car in which former Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation mayor and leader of Secular Alliance of Party Asha Idnani was travelling to a polling booth in Ulhasnagar on Tuesday morning.
Asha Idnani is contesting the UMC polls from panel no 9.
Idnani alleged opposition candidate Manoj Laasi from team Omie Kalani, which is backed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had a role in the attack.
“He, along with other 8 people, vandalised our vehicle in front of policemen. We have lodged a complaint,” said Jeevan Idnani, Asha Idnani’s husband.
Idnani and Kalani both have had several tiffs over sanctioning projects in Ulhasnagar.
In 2013 , former MLA MLA Pappu Kalani, father of Omie Kalani, got into a controversy with Idnani for beating up her husband in the presence of political leaders.
After the incident, Asha Idnani had sought police protection. She had also lodged a complaint at Vitthalwadi police station.
Denying his involvement in the act, Omie Kalani said , “They are doing it for cheap publicity. We believe in competition.”
