Pune: Former Congress MLA Sambhajirao Kunjir was beaten up by party workers belonging to rival faction during the process for the election of Pune district Congress president on Tuesday.
It was a free-for-all in the Congress Bhavan when workers, allegedly belonging to Sanjay Jagtap group hailing from Punandar taluk, attacked Kunjir by hurling chairs. The scuffle broke out when efforts were being made to elect the party`s Pune district president unanimously.

Kunjir, later, alleged that the attack on him was "pre-meditated" but denied that he would be lodging a police complaint in the matter, saying it was for the party to initiate action against those responsible for the unruly behaviour.
