A number of political events additionally couldn’t perceive it,” he mentioned. To a query, Raut accused the BJP of destroying the “tradition and humour” that marked Maharashtra’s politics earlier.
“Persons are afraid of talking now. Such a scenario didn’t exist in Maharashtra earlier. Sadly, our mates within the BJP have performed this,” he mentioned.
