Protesting against rising fuel prices Shiv Sena, BJP's ally in Maharashtra, carried out protests on the streets of Mumbai on Saturday. Protests were carried out at 10 different locations in Mumbai and were led by various leaders of the party. Yuva Sena President, Aditya Thackeray was present at the protest in Bandra. 

This was the first time that Sena, a ruling party, took to the streets playing the role of main opposition in the state. "We are not greedy for power. We promised people and we are accountable to them. 

This government should roll back the prices of fuel or we will continue the protest," said Anil Desai, Sena Leader. The protests were carried out in Borivali, Kandivali, Jogeshwari, Bandra, Kurla, Bhandup, Ghatkopar, Chembur, Dadar, Lower Parel and CST. It was attended by ministers in the current government like Health Minister Dr Deepak Sawant and MP of Rajya Sabha, Anil Desai. 

In a meeting at Matoshree last week, Sena had a brainstorming session to decide its future course of action with a major section complaining of step-motherly treatment being meted out to the Sena by its dominant partner in the state.

During the protest Aditya Thackeray said, "It seems all the promises made in the past were false and people want their bure din back. If we look at demonitisation it also looks like a scam. We are protesting because rising prices is injustice to people."

The protests were attended by women in large numbers who were cooking on stove as prices of CNG is rising and wore vegetables around thier neck to signify inflation in household items.
