Athawale evicted from Govt bungalow,supporters go on rampage

RPI chief Ramdas Athawale was today evicted from his government bungalow in Delhi after the ex-MP refused to vacate the premises triggering a violent reaction when his supporters attacked the newly renovated Mumbai Congress office.

Dalit leader Ramdas Athawale, who was evicted today from his posh Lodhi estate bungalow here, alleged that the Congress was victimising him for his refusal to offer support to the party in the upcoming Maharashtra Assembly elections.

Supporters of Athawale, who is the president of the Republican Party of India (RPI), vandalised the Congress office in South Mumbai. The air-conditioned office, which was renovated and re-christened Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan and inaugurated by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi a few days ago, bore the brunt of the fury of Athawale’s supporters, 23 of whom were arrested later.
