Amid a bitter feud between his party and Union minister Narayan Rane, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday wondered whether BJP leadership is supporting those people who insult Maharashtra's pride and self-respect.
Raut, the executive editor of the party mouthpiece 'Saamana', said in his weekly column that apart from Maharashtra BJP leaders Devendra Fadnavis and Chandrakant Patil, Central leaders like BJP president JP Nadda and Home Minister Amit Shah had reportedly called up Rane to express their support to him.
