Nilesh Bhosale, president of city NCP youth wing, said about 200 workers participated in the protest where a band, termed 'Hotplay', played and they danced.

Locals, especially slum dwellers in the area, joined in, he said.

He said the protest lasted for over 45 minutes and police detained some workers.
