Senior Maharashtra Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat on Thursday labelled Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut’s remarks on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as “wrong” while stating that such remarks will not be tolerated. 

In a series of tweet, Maharashtra Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat said that Raut should avoid making such remarks against “our” leaders.

Indira ji Gandhi was a dynamic national leader. In 1975, she broke the backbone of the crime world in Mumbai, dismantled the smuggling racket as well and put all criminals like Karim Lala, Haji Mastan, Yusuf Patel behind bars to maintain law and order situation,” Thorat tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Sanjay Raut took back his statement about Indira Gandhi meeting infamous mafia don Karim Lala in Mumbai. 

Our friends from Congress need not feel hurt. If someone feels that my statement has hurt the image of Indira Gandhi ji or hurt someone’s feelings, I take it back,” Sanjay Raut said.

In another tweet, Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat targeted Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis and alleged that Fadnavis met an ‘infamous underworld don’ at his official residence Varsha while he was the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

After Raut’s remarks, Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra legislative assembly, Devendra Fadnavis demanded to know whether the underworld mafia was financing Congress and sought clarification from its leaders. 

Reacting to this, Balasaheb Thorat said that Fadnavis should give up his habit of making a mountain of a mole and should not insult Indira Gandhi to make up for the loss which BJP suffered for comparing Narendra Modi with Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
