Shiv Sena name and symbol to be purchased in 2,000 crore deal so far: Sanjay Raut

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut said on Sunday that a deal was made to buy the Shiv Sena party name and its bow-and-arrow symbol for at least 2,000 crore. A builder with ties to the ruling party told him about the deal.

Two days before Raut’s claims, the Election Commission of India (ECI) gave the name and symbol of the Shiv Sena party to the group led by Maharashtra’s chief minister, Eknath Shinde. Shinde’s party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is allied with Shinde’s party, both denied what the Rajya Sabha member said.

“I’ve heard from reliable sources that the Shiv Sena symbol and name have been sold for 2,000 crore so far. This is a rough estimate that is 100% accurate,” Raut wrote on Twitter. “Soon, many things will become clear. Never before in the history of the country has anything like this happened.”

He told reporters that some builders close to the current government told him about this “deal,” and he said that he would soon show proof. The Rajya Sabha member also said that this deal was used to get the ECI to change its mind.

Shiv Sena MLA Sada Sarvankar, who is close to Shinde, said that Raut’s claims were “baseless” and asked, “Is Sanjay Raut a cashier?”

Sudhir Mungantiwar, a minister in Maharashtra and a BJP leader, also responded to Raut. He said that Raut’s comments were untrue and that he was trying to hurt institutions like the Supreme Court and the ECI. “Those who say things like that, which are disrespectful to democracy, will learn a lesson,” he said. “Hope better sense prevails.”
