Mumbai: Activists of Ramdas Athawale-led RPI on Friday allegedly attacked the Mumbai Congress office after their leader's belongings were "thrown out" from his MP residence in Delhi.

They pelted stones at the newly-renovated office and shouted slogans against the government.

"We condemn the government's act of throwing out Athawale's belongings out of 8 Lodhi Estate, the residence he was alloted as a member of the Parliament," a supporter said.

Athawale lost the recent Lok Sabha poll from Shirdi.

RPI supporters shouted slogans against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and the UPA government. The refurbished MRCC office, Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, was inaugurated by Gandhi earlier this week.
