NEW DELHI - Indian hardliner Hindu party Shiv Sena lawmaker’s stir against Muslim manager of the Maharashtra government's guesthouse has taken an ugly turn.

Shiv Sena MP, apparently angry over not being served Maharashtrian food, allegedly forced a Muslim worker to eat a ‘chapatti’ to break his Ramzan fast.

Denying the charge, Sena MP Sanjay Raut justified, "There seems a plot to give a communal twist to the entire episode. The Sena MPs were agitating against the sloppy management of Maharashtra Bhavan, especially the official administrators who have turned the Bhavan into their personal fief."
