Sanjay Raut’s breach of privilege notice sent to Rajya Sabha

Mumbai, ,25/3: In a significant development, the Maharashtra Legislature has referred the breach of privilege notice to journalist-politician Sanjay Raut over his “chor-mandal” remark to Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar, the chairperson of Rajya Sabha.



Raut, a close aide of former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray and a four-term Rajya Sabha member, described the ‘vidhan mandal’ (legislature) as “chor-mandal”, which translates to ‘body of thieves’.


Members of the ruling Shiv Sena-BJP alliance moved a breach of privilege against him.


However, later he clarified that his comments were aimed at Shiv Sena legislators who switched sides along with Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde.
