Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, who calls actress Kangana Ranaut as a harem, has been promoted. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, who made headlines for the verbal war with Kangana, has been appointed as the chief spokesperson of the party by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. The Shiv Sena made this announcement on Tuesday in the party’s mouthpiece Saamana.
Apart from Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena has appointed 10 other members as spokespersons. These include Shiv Sena MPs Arvind Sawant, Priyanka Chaturvedi and Dheershil Mane, Maharashtra ministers Anil Parab, Uday Samanta and Gulabrao Patil, MLAs Neelam Gore, Pratap Sarnaik and Sunil Prabhu etc. Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar was also appointed as the spokesperson. Sarnaik has been vocal against Kangana and the BJP in the current controversy.
Sanjay Raut has also been criticized for making comments against Kangana Ranaut. However, party insiders said the announcement was meant to send a message to party members not to speak on behalf of the party over the ongoing dispute between Kangana and the Shiv Sena leader.
Where did the dispute start
In fact, in the Sushant Singh case, there has been a verbal war on Twitter between Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena leaders for the past several days. Kangana Ranaut had tweeted that she does not trust the Maharashtra Police. At the same time, she wants her security to be taken up by the Haryana Police or the agency of the Center. After this, Shiv Sena Sanjay Raut asked Kangana not to return to Mumbai and used the word haramkhor for Kangana.
Clarification on statement
Later Sanjay Raut gave his clarification and said that it has another meaning in Maharashtra. Here it means naughty and dishonest. Sanjay Raut said, ‘If anyone wants to do politics or create an atmosphere, then any word can be interpreted. When we talk in Maharashtra, haramkhor means naughty and dishonest. She (Kangana) is a naughty girl. I have seen and read that she jokes. I called Kangana dishonest in my language.
What did Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik say
Sarnaik has tweeted that Kangana should be booked for treason for comparing Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Sarnaik said that Sanjay Raut Ji had softened and cautioned Kangana. If she comes here, our brave women will not leave her without slapping them.
