Mumbai, July 6:

An offence was registered against over 50 BJP office bearers and workers for organising a function to felicitate new executive committee members of the party, in BJP office in Wardha in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, in violation of lock down regulations, on Sunday. 
The function was organised to felicitate office bearers including BJP MLA Pankaj Bhoyar,  district secretary Rajesh Bakane and others, by BJP Pulgaon Yuva Morcha and Wardha city BJP unit, without seeking required police permission. 
Wardha Municipal Council Vice President Pradip Singh Thakur, Prashant Ingle Tigaonkar, Prashant Burle, Sridhar Deshmukh, Pawan Pariyal, Bharat Nagpal, Ali Saifi, Guddu Kawale, Sunita Dhawle, Manjusha Dudhbade, Sheetal Thakre, Viru Pande, Nilesh Kite, Girish Kamble, Ashok Kalode and others were present. 
The offence under section 37(1) (3) of the Maharashtra Police Act was registered for violating lock down regulations and organising public function without seeking required permission, at Ram Nagar Police station against Pawan Pariyal and others, for arranging a mass gathering. 
Those named in the FIR included: Pradip Singh Thakur, Prashant Ingle, Guddu Kawale, Sunita Dhawle, Manjusha Dudhbade, Sheetal Thakre, Prashant Burle, Viru Pande, Nilesh Kite, Sridhar Deshmukh, Girish Kamble, Ashok Kalode and 40 other BJP workers. 
The police reached the venue no sooner the information about the function in BJP office was received and stopped the programme. Although the office bearers wore face masks, they did not seem to maintain required social distance from each other. 
In a similar incident BJP MLA Dadarao Keche from Arvi assembly constituency in the same  district, was booked for gathering over 200 people for distributing free rations to them on his birthday at his residence, in violation of lock down norms, in April. However Keche had maintained that like every year, he had planned to distribute food grains only to 21 families.  However his opponents conspired and spread the message that he was distributing free ration to everyone, which resulted in confusion.
