Mumbai: Protesting against the demand for separate Vidarbha state, Shiv Sena workers on Wednesday were lathicharged by police in Akola, Maharashtra.

The Shiv Sena has moved the resolution in support of a united Maharashtra in the Legislative Council.

The party has also got support from Opposition over the issue.

Though the BJP has supported separate Vidarbha state, it will be difficult for its government to vote against the motion as all its ministers, including the CM took an oath as Maharashtra ministers.
