Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut, whose ED custody increased up to August 8 in the alleged money laundering case, has written a letter to thank all opposition party leaders from INC, NCP, TMC, DMK, AAP, CPI, CPIM and other parties who showed solidarity with him against the "political witch hunt" through ED.
'‘It is said that the toughest times show you who your reliable allies are. I am really thankful for the overwhelming support to me during the political witch hunt and motivated attack directed against me by the central government through central agencies, It makes me grateful indeed,’’ said Raut.
‘’My fight will continue for what is right and neither will I bow down to this pressure nor break my resolve to see this fight through. Vandaniya Hinduhriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray always said do not cry, fight for what is right,’’ he noted.
He further stated, ‘’I take this opportunity to thank you for showing support to me through your words, your actions and your thoughts. Thank you for expressing solidarity with my party colleagues as well who raised this issue inside and outside the parliament,’’ said Raut.
‘’Time and patience are the greatest warriors, with this thought, with the learning of Balasaheb Thackeray, with the support of Uddhav Thackeray, my family and well-wishers, I am confident we will all soon emerge victorious in this fight for the very ethos of our great nation,’’ opined Raut.
