Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut claimed on Sunday that financial deals worth over Rs 2,000 crore had already been completed for the original 'Shiv Sena' name and 'Bow-and-Arrow' emblem.
"I have credible information... I am confident... This is merely the primary figure, and it is 100% correct," Raut tweeted.
"I have got reliable information... I am confident... This is only the primary figure and it is 100 per cent correct," said Raut in a series of tweets.
"This is unprecedented in the country's history... Some more revelations will be made soon," said Raut, in an allegation that can be viewed as pointing fingers at the Election Commission of India (ECI).
ECI grants 'Shiv Sena' name and symbol to the breakaway faction Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena
The Sena (UBT) Chief Spokesperson's explosive claims came just two days after the ECI granted the 'Shiv Sena' name and symbol to the breakaway faction Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena, led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.
Raut's surprising remarks came a day after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) urged the Bombay High Court on Saturday to cancel the MP's and others' 'perverse' bail.
He was detained on August 1 in connection with the Patrawala Chawl deal for alleged corruption and money laundering and was released on November 9.
