Tension prevailed in the city for a while when a group of BJP workers, joined by Sri Ram Sene and Bajrang Dal activists, raised objection to the construction of an arch for the Syed Shah Alauddin dargah near Kate Darwaja on Thursday.

The agitating BJP workers alleged that the City Municipal Council (CMC) had taken up construction of the arch at the ASI site without taking permission from the central agency. They demanded the CMC to stop the construction activity immediately.

“The CMC has not taken permission from the ASI. There is no clarity under what work head did they release grants. They have taken up work under other/miscellaneous works illegally. The officials have started work without my knowledge,” MLA Dr Shivraj Patil charged.
