The protests were held on Airoli-Mulund bridge and at  Diva Circle in Airoli at around 11 am.  "There were some agitations by the Shiv Sena, due to which traffic was disrupted for some time. We cleared the road for vehicular movement after removing them," said Pradip Tidar, senior Police Inspector, Rabale police station.

Nobody was arrested as protests were held in a peaceful manner. Chindam, a BJP leader, allegedly made the objectionable comments against the 17th century warrior king while ticking up of an employee of the Ahmednagar civic body.

In a video circulated on WhatsApp, Chindam was purportedly seen offering apology for saying objectionable
things about Shivaji "unintentionally". Ahmednagar Lok Sabha MP Dilip Gandhi had said that Chindam would be dismissed from the party.
