Mumbai: There was an uproar in Govandi among Shiv Sena workers over local appointments in the party across the city on Thursday.

A Sena women worker allegedly slapped the Vibhag Pramukh Rajendra Raut after which senior leaders intervened to control the situation.

The Shiv Sena has made many new appointments at local levels in which few office bearers were changed. There are disputes going on in some areas leading to Thursday’s incident.

The Shiv Sena had arranged a women’s day programme at Govandi Ram Mandir where Mr Raut was present.

After the programme, women workers went up to him and one of them slapped him.

The party has taken serious note of the  incident and necessary steps will be taken soon, said a  party leader.
