"During his meeting with these activists, Uddhavji patted them for their work," a source close to the Sena leader said.
    
The Sena workers met Uddhav at the latter's residence 'Matoshree' in suburban Bandra this afternoon. Sena vibhag pramukh Mangesh Satamkar reached Matoshree along with the party workers to a warm welcome. Later, they met Uddhav.

The six -- Gajanand Patil, Dinesh Prasad, Ashok Waghmare, Prakash Husbe, Samadhan Jadhav and Venkatesh Nair – were yesterday arrested and later released.
    
Meanwhile, Sudheendra Kulkarni, the chairman of Observer and Research Foundation which had yesterday organised Kasuri's book launch event, today described himself as an 'agent of peace' and not a 'Pakistani agent' as labelled by Shiv Sena and asked the saffron party to respect other people's freedom of expression.
    
"I have been labelled a Pakistani agent in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana'. I respect their freedom of expression. They should also respect others' freedom of expression," Kulkarni said at a press conference in Mumbai.
    
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had yesterday disapproved of Shiv Sena's protests, saying the issue has brought disrepute to the state.
