Sanjay Raut meets Uddhav, says, \"My arrest was political, such vendetta politics never seen before\"
Twelve hours after being released from jail on bail, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Thackeray faction) MP Sanjay Raut said he don't have any complaints regarding anybody including the Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government. However, he quipped that his arrest was political and that such kind of “vendetta politics” was not seen in the country earlier. A special court in Mumbai granted bail to Rajya Sabha member Raut on Wednesday, saying his arrest was “illegal” and a "witch-hunt”.
“I was in solitary confinement, just like Savarkar and Tilak. Even my arrest was political and I used my time for a good purpose. Whatever my party, my family and I had to endure…we have suffered. My family has lost a lot. It happens in life and politics," Raut said, adding, "But the country has never seen this kind of politics. Our country was under foreign rule for 150 years, but we did not see this kind of political vendetta in the country. Even the enemies were treated nicely.”
"I will meet Uddhav Thackeray, NCP chief Sharad Pawar also called me. I don't have any complaints regarding anybody. I will not blame any central agencies," Sanjay Raut said. He also met Sharad Pawar.
Praising the present state government, he said, "A new govt was formed in Maharashtra, I welcome some of their good decisions. Dy CM Devendra Fadanvis took some good decisions. We feel that the state is being run by Dy CM Fadnavis and he is leading the state."
Talking about his plans earlier in the day, the Shiv Sena MP said, "I will meet Uddhav Thackeray & Sharad Pawar today. I will be meeting Dy CM Devendra Fadnavis in 2-4 days related to the work of people. I will also go to Delhi & will meet PM Modi & Union Home minister Amit Shah."
