Sanjay Raut said this in response
In response to this, Sanjay Raut said, ‘Have I made that cartoon? … didn’t even delete that tweet. Where he had to reach, he has reached. Pramod Mahajan is standing in front of Balasaheb in that cartoon. That was the initial period of alliance with BJP. Yesterday the BJP leader of Maharashtra (Devendra Fadnavis) had shared this cartoon to show the reality of the statement. RK Laxman was a neutral cartoonist. He did not belong to any party. I did not make any personal comment on Pramod Mahajan. So there should be no reason to be angry over this. If there is anything wrong with this cartoon then objection should have been raised 35-40 years ago.
Let us tell you that yesterday Devendra Fadnavis had said in the PC that Shiv Sena moved ahead with the support of BJP. Today, leaving the support of BJP, it has come from number one to number four. Devendra Fadnavis had also said that Shiv Sena leaders used to fight elections in the name of BJP. He had said that when Shiv Sena did not even exist, then BJP had become a corporator in Mumbai.
‘Where are Mahajan, Munde and Parrikar in BJP today?’
Sanjay Raut, questioning the condition of today’s generation of veteran BJP leaders said, “Gopinath Munde, Pramod Mahajan, Manohar Parrikar, these three families have a big contribution in taking the BJP forward. But where is their next generation today? Where is Poonam Mahajan today, I don’t know. I have to ask him this.’ At the same time, he also said that he has a good relationship with the Mahajan family.
Sanjay Raut gave this answer to BJP on the issue of Hindutva
Sanjay Raut reminds history that the first election on the issue of Hindutva was fought by Shiv Sena and won. He said, “For the first time in the Vile Parle by-election in Mumbai, Shiv Sena had contested on the issue of Hindutva. Balasaheb had campaigned only with the issue of Hindutva. Congress was not only in opposition, BJP was also in opposition. Still Shiv Sena won. The new leaders of BJP (Neo Hindutvawadis) do not know history. Someone has torn those pages of history for them. But from time to time we will keep them informed.
