    Anil Kadam flies into rage after asked to show identity card

    Enraged over demand of toll, Shiv Sena MLA Anil Kadam and his supporters on Thursday allegedly ransacked a toll-booth near Pimpalgaon Baswant on the Mumbai-Agra National Highway in Nashik.

    Video footage aired by a private news channel also purportedly showed Kadam abusing the all-female staff at the booth.

    Sources said MLA Kadam was travelling in a private vehicle to reach a place in his constituency on Thursday at around noon when the vehicle was stopped for toll at the Pimpalgaon Baswant toll plaza of the Pimpalgaon Nashik Gonde Tollway Limited (PNGTL) of L&T IDPL.

    A verbal altercation started after the toll plaza employees asked for the identity card for exemption.

    The police said Kadam apparently lost his cool after the staff demanded toll from him while the MLAs are exempted from paying toll.

    However, police authorities could not confirm if any case had been registered against Kadam, who represents Niphad constituency.

    Speaking to dna, MLA Anil Kadam said, “I was travelling in a private vehicle in my constituency along the highway when my vehicle was stopped. The employees at the plaza were informed by the driver that the MLA is travelling in the vehicle.

    However, the employees insisted on the card and serial number. Such type of harassment is experienced time and again. As a people’s representative if I have to face such situations time and again, imagine what the general public must be going through. It was just that I lost my patience.

    However, considering that there was women staff the protest was in form of verbal altercationâ€￾.

    In a similar incident late on Wednesday night, supporters of Samajwadi Party MLA Abdul Rashid Momin ransacked a toll booth at Kasheli near Bhiwandi in Thane district and assaulted the staff because the legislator was asked to pay toll.

    In an unrelated incident, toll recovery at Mangrulphata on the Mumbai-Agra National Highway was affected after Chandwad MLA Shirish Kotwal (Independent) and his supporters started an agitation on Thursday morning demanding an underground subway at Vadalibhoi in Nashik district.

    Poor excuse. If he wishes to empathize with the general public, he shouldn't expect any special treatment. Being elected to government office shouldn't be a reward to justify a life of privileges over the common man; its an acceptance of great responsibility to live in service to the citizenry.

    Problem is once becoming elite they forget from where they came from and who got them there. Disrespect to people and property should be dealt with as commoner.
