Danve further claimed this was an “attempt to create a quarrel between the Hindu and Dalit communities”, and demanded action against police officials for not providing adequate security to Thackeray’s event. District Superintendent of Police Maneesh Kalwaniya had denied that there was any stone-pelting. There was only sloganeering by two groups, he had said.
However, after the public meeting, Danve wrote a letter to Maharashtra Director General of Police Rajnish Seth mentioning about the incident and claiming there was a “inexcusable negligence” in the security.
Danve demanded that a serious note be taken of this negligence.
