After Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoned Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in an IL&FS related case, the party called for a ‘bandh’ in Thane while labelling the central investigation agency’s move as “political vendetta”

However, after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis warned the MNS workers of ‘consequences’, the party withdrew from the protest which was scheduled on August 22. 

While addressing the media on Monday, CM Fadnavis had maintained that there will be consequences if there is any inconvenience to the public. The Chief Minister said that the state government will take action against those who take the law into their hands.
