Mumbai, Jun 15 (UNI) The controversial former NCP Member of Legislative Council Vinayak Mete has been removed from the Party state unit's Vice-President post, following his alleged involvement in the attack on Marathi daily 'Loksatta' editor Kumar Ketkar's residence in Thane.
This was confirmed by the Party sources here.
On June 6, Mr Ketkar's house was attacked allegedly by some 70 activists of Shiv Sangram outfit, headed by Mr Mete, for his editorial in the newspaper criticising the Congress-NCP government's proposal to install a huge statue of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji in the Arabian Sea.
In the editorial, Mr Ketkar had written that Maharashtra government was trying to gain political mileage by misusing the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji.
