Mumbai: Congress and Shiv Sena supporters on Friday had a face off at Dadar in central Mumbai while the Maharashtra-based party candidates were filing nomination.

Sena candidate from Mahim, Aadesh Bandekar, and his supporters objected to the vehicles parked by Congress minister Narayan Rane and former Sena MLA Sada Sarvankar outside the returning office.

They demanded their removal, which led to slogan-shouting from both sides.

Police, however, brought the situation under control.

Sarvankar joined Congress yesterday, as he was denied ticket by Sena for Assembly polls on October 13 from Mahim constituency. Aadesh said, "They (Congress activists) violated Election Commission norms and I will complain about it to our party leaders."
