Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Thursday said the Special Protection Group and police would provide security to AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi during his visit to Mumbai on Friday.

“We will not tolerate any insult to Mr. Gandhi,” the Chief Minister said on the sidelines of a conference of Divisional Commissioners and Collectors here.

Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray had told his party workers to welcome Mr. Gandhi with black flags.
