Nashik: Spitting on the dishonest is Hindu culture. Even freedom fighter Veer Savarkar had spit on the dishonest. Why is there so much fuss over what I have done? This is the statement of senior Shiv Sena (UTT) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut, who has said this on his two consecutive days by listening to the names of leaders of the Shinde faction on camera.
Actually, Sanjay Raut was talking to the media today i.e. on Saturday (June 3) while going from Nashik to Trimbakeshwar. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has expressed great resentment among Shiv Sena leaders and workers against this action of Sanjay Raut. Shinde Sena activists are holding a 'shoe hit movement' against Sanjay Raut across Maharashtra today. Shoes and slippers are being showered on their pictures and posters. Someone is demanding to send him to jail, someone is demanding that a case of atrocity be filed against him. Also, someone is asking Sanjay Raut to apologize. So someone is saying that Sanjay Raut's mental balance has deteriorated.
On this, Sanjay Raut has said today that the people will kill him. Just to hit the traitors with shoes, the public is waiting for the election to take place. They have no work or business. In a democracy, everyone has freedom of expression. Let them do whatever they want. By the way, these traitors should actually hit their shoes on themselves. They betrayed Shiv Shahi, betrayed Shiv Sena. And these traitors were celebrating Shivaji Maharaj's coronation yesterday. "Even Veer Savarkar spit on traitors and I am his devotee."
