Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has said that Sambhajiraje Chhatrapati, the descendant of Maratha warrior king Shivaji Maharaj, should join Shiv Sena as the party will give him due respect and consider his candidature for Rajya Sabha election slated for June 10.

If he does not do so, then the party will nominate a 'Shiv Sainik' for the sixth seat, Raut added.

Sambhajiraje , a former Rajya Sabha member, had earlier announced that he would independently contest the next election to Rajya Sabha slated for June 10. He also announced the setting up of a new outfit, ‘Swaraj’, at a press conference in Pune. Sambhajiraje was nominated by BJP from the President’s quota in the upper house and his term expires in July.
