Mumbai | Over a hundred Shiv Sena workers today staged a noisy protest against Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shaharyar Khan at the BCCI office here over the issue of resumption of cricketing ties between India and the neighbouring country.
Shouting slogans against Pakistan and the PCB chairman, the Sena workers asked BCCI chief Shashank Manohar not to have any ties with the neighbouring country, which they said sponsors terrorism.
Waving black and saffron flags, the workers sought to know from Manohar if he would go ahead with his meeting with the PCB chief here. Sena Vibhag Pramukh Pandurang Sakpal told reporters that his party is firm that there should be no cricket matches between the two countries.
Asked about Sena being a part of the Maharashtra government, Sakpal said, The government will do its job, we will do ours. What we did today is Sena’s stance, he said. The protesting Sena workers were later taken into custody by the police.
