PVR multiplex staff beaten up by Raj Thackeray’s MNS party worker

First the street vendors now a multiplex staff, Raj Thackeray’s party workers are often caught throwing around their weight.

The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) party workers including a former corporate, Kishor Shinde on Thursday thrashed the PVR multiplex staff at PVR Icon multiplex located at Senapati Bapat Road, Pune over the high pricing of food items sold at the multiplex.

A video recorded which went viral on social media, caught the party workers assaulting the multiplex staff. Thereafter Pune police registered a case against the party workers at Chatuhshrungi police station.

Speaking to DNA, Shinde admitted that his party workers thrashed the theatre staff. “These multiplexes are overpricing the food items and recently even the Bombay High Court also questioned the state government over the high pricing at the multiplexes. Based on those reports, we had gone to various multiplexes asking them the logic behind the high pricing,” Shinde said.

“At PVR however, when we asked the staff if he has read the news, he said that he does not know Marathi so he could not read Marathi newspaper. When we asked him the explanation of high pricing, instead of giving the explanation, he said, those who can purchase food items should visit the multiplex. Our party workers got annoyed with his arrogant answer and some of them slapped him,” he added.

Earlier, last year, The Raj Thackeray led party members went to the station for checking the encroachment near Western Line, where they were beaten up by rods and sticks as they tried to evacuate the hawkers. The MNS, known for going after the migrant labourers in Mumbai, for the first time, themselves had got thrashed.

Humiliated by his party workers getting a dose of their own medicine from the hawkers they were attacking, MNS chief Raj Thackeray had threatened to sack party office bearers if something like that happened again. One is left to wonder what Raj Thackeray’s reaction would be at this shameful act. Not surprised, if he applauds his people this time, as he once said proudly: ‘In MNS, we beat up people, we don’t get beaten up’.
