In a dig at Uddhav Thackeray visiting Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut's home, a rebel MLA on Monday said sainiks would have been happy had he also given time to leaders Pratap Sarnaik and Yashwant Jadhav facing the Enforcement Directorate action.

Earlier in the day, Thackeray met with the family members of Raut, arrested by the ED in a money laundering case, at the latter's residence in Mumbai.

"Had Uddhav Thackeray also given time to Pratap Sarnaik (rebel Sena MLA from Thane) and Yashwant Jadhav (former head of Mumbai civic body's standing committee) who faced the ED action, it would have made Shivsainks happy," MLA Sanjay Shirsat told reporters in Aurangabad.

Shirsat said the ED action has been going on for the last 4-6 months and even Sanjay Raut was ready to face it.

"However, while the probe was underway, Raut didn't keep his mouth shut," said the Aurangabad West MLA.

Shirsat also took a dig at Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) over Raut's arrest.

"There is no reaction from the NCP over the ED action. This means Raut is of no use to them now. They don't need him anymore it seems," he said.
