Former minister Eknath Khadse’s supporters on Saturday clashed with Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan at the district BJP’s meeting at Jalgaon in north Maharashtra.
Khadse supporters were upset as his name on an invitation card for an official function on Sunday was not listed on top, along with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Mahajan.
The district BJP meeting was convened to plan Sunday’s function.
However, aggressive Khadse supporters raised slogans and questioned Mahajan.
Mahajan said, “For any official function the invitation card is printed as per guidelines laid down by the protocol department. As per protocol, the governor’s and chief minister’s name are always at the top. It is followed by Cabinet ministers, ministers of state and then elected members of Parliament and state Assembly.”
