Sanjay Raut: In the aftermath of the recent unrest in Kolhapur, a war of words has erupted between the Uddhav Thackeray camp and the Shinde-Fadnavis government. Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut launched a scathing attack on Maharashtra home minister Devendra Fadnavis, accusing him of turning a blind eye to a death threat received by a party spokesperson. Raut raised concerns over the safety of the Sena (UBT) spokesperson and questioned the government’s inaction in the face of such a serious threat.
The Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader, Sanjay Raut, expressed his outrage at the situation and criticized the Shinde-Fadnavis government for its handling of the matter. Raut took to Twitter in Hindi, expressing his dismay and questioning the state of affairs in Maharashtra. He posed direct questions to Fadnavis, asking if the government had authorized the elimination of its political opponents and if a tender had been floated for the murder as well. Raut demanded answers from Fadnavis regarding the alleged death threat faced by the Sena (UBT) spokesperson.\
Fresh Clash Erupts: Sanjay Raut Slams Fadnavis Over Alleged Death Threat to Sena Spokesperson
The incident revolves around a threatening phone call received by Sena (UBT) spokesperson Anand Dubey, allegedly made by a leader from Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde’s Shiv Sena. According to reports, Dubey received a call from Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Mashilkar at 7.45 pm, but he was unable to answer it as he was participating in a news channel debate. After the debate, Dubey returned the call to Mashilkar, who then allegedly issued the threat, questioning Dubey’s identity and warning him to stay within his limits, or else he would face dire consequences.
Dubey promptly informed Sanjay Raut about the threatening call and filed a complaint at the Samata Nagar police station in Mumbai. The police initiated an investigation and started tracing the origin of the call. The incident sheds light on the escalating tensions within the Shiv Sena party, as Mashilkar was associated with Uddhav Thackeray before the party’s vertical split.
The incident occurred against the backdrop of the unrest in Kolhapur, where right-wing Hindu organizations staged a rally to protest social media posts allegedly glorifying Aurangzeb and Tipu Sultan. The rally led to a violent outbreak, with miscreants pelting stones at homes, businesses, and vehicles belonging to the Muslim community. To maintain law and order, prohibitory orders were issued, banning the assembly of five or more persons until June 19.
While urging for peace, deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, who also serves as the state home minister, defended the actions of the Hindutva outfits involved in the protest. Fadnavis justified the aggression, stating that glorifying Aurangzeb was bound to provoke a reaction, and his government would not tolerate it, as Maharashtra belonged to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
In the face of this controversy, it is crucial to address the concerns raised by Sanjay Raut regarding the safety and security of political spokespersons. The incident underscores the need for swift action by the government to ensure the well-being of individuals involved in public discourse. As tensions continue to escalate, it remains to be seen how the Shinde-Fadnavis government will respond to the serious allegations and restore a sense of stability and security within the political landscape of Maharashtra.
āAs the clash between the Uddhav Thackeray camp and the Shinde-Fadnavis government intensifies following the unrest in Kolhapur, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut continues to voice his concerns regarding the safety and security of party members. Raut’s criticism is directed towards Maharashtra home minister Devendra Fadnavis, whom he accuses of remaining indifferent to the alleged death threat received by a Shiv Sena (UBT) spokesperson. Raut questions the government’s silence and demands accountability in the face of such a serious issue.

Expressing his discontent, Sanjay Raut took to Twitter in Hindi to question the current state of affairs in Maharashtra. He raises poignant questions, asking whether the government has authorized the elimination of political opponents and even goes as far as suggesting the existence of a tender for murder. Raut’s strong words emphasize the gravity of the situation and the urgency for Fadnavis to address the concerns raised by the Sena (UBT) spokesperson’s alleged death threat.
The incident revolves around Anand Dubey, the Sena (UBT) spokesperson, who received a threatening phone call from a Shiv Sena leader, Sanjay Mashilkar. Unfortunately, Dubey was unable to answer the call as he was engaged in a debate on a news channel at the time. However, after the debate concluded, Dubey returned the call to Mashilkar, only to be met with a direct threat. Mashilkar questioned Dubey’s identity and warned him to restrain himself from speaking out on television, threatening him with dire consequences otherwise.
Anand Dubey immediately alerted Sanjay Raut about the threatening call and subsequently filed a complaint at the Samata Nagar police station in Mumbai. The police promptly launched an investigation and initiated efforts to trace the origin of the call. This incident sheds light on the escalating tensions within the Shiv Sena party, particularly in light of Mashilkar’s previous association with Uddhav Thackeray before the party’s vertical split.
