Mumbai: A scuffle broke out between Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers at actress-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar's election campaign in Mumbai's Borivali on Monday. 

Urmila is Congress candidate from Mumbai North for the Lok Sabha election 2019 and is fighting against BJP sitting MP Gopal Shetty from the constituency. 

As per sources, the BJP workers chanted slogans of PM Modi outside the Borivali railway station as they confronted the Congress workers at the campaign.

A police complaint has been filed by Urmila at the Borivali police station. She has also sought police protection after the incident and said alleged that "there's a threat to her life."

"It's being done to create fear. It's just beginning, it will take a violent turn. I have asked for police protection. There's a threat to my life, I have filed a complaint," Urmila told news agency ANI.

Urmila filed her nomination for the polls last week. Voting in Mumbai North will be held in the fourth phase, which is scheduled for April 29.
