Nitesh Rane ‘throws fish’ at govt officer

Mumbai: A meeting called to discuss problems faced by fishermen saw sparks flying with Congress MLA Nitesh Rane losing his cool and allegedly throwing fish at a senior government officer.

In a video clip aired by local news channels, Rane is purportedly seen talking to the fisheries commissioner of Sindhudurg in his office packed with people yesterday.

It showed that during the meeting, the legislator suddenly lost his cool, picked up a fish which was dumped on the commissioner’s table and threw it at him.

The MLA from Kankavli in coastal Sindhudurg district said he did so to protest the officer’s alleged “ignorant attitude” towards the woes of the traditional fishing community of the Konkan region.
