Pune: Political parties condemned the act of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) as former corporators assaulted an official of PVR Cinemas on Saturday. 

Ramesh Bagwe, City Unit Chief of Congress said, “There are democratic ways to register your opposition. However, every time, MNS chooses an undemocratic way to protest. There is an organisation of cinemas where we can register our opinion. No doubt extra charge on food products in multiplex is an issue, but, this is not the way to protest.”

Yogesh Gogawale, City Unit Chief of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said,  “In a democracy, everyone can express their opinion but violence is not acceptable.”

Vandana Chavan of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) said, “No one can take law in their own hand. MNS should follow constitutional ways to register their resistance or condemn any act.”

On Thursday, a mob of political hoodlums, including a former corporator belonging to MNS assaulted an official of PVR Cinemas over the issue of overpricing of food in multiplexes at PVR Icon Multiplex located inside Pavilion Mall on Senapati Bapat Road. MNS raised the issue of rates of the overly charged food products sold at the multiplex. Former corporator of MNS Kishor Shinde and other party workers assaulted a multiplex official and slapped him when he tried to reason with them.
