While Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati’s independent candidacy for the Rajya Sabha elections has ignited politics in the state, the sensational claim made by his father Shahu Maharaj has now created an image of differences between Sambhaji Raje and Shahu Maharaj. There is no doubt that the family was insulted when Sambhaji Raje’s personal candidacy was rejected. After receiving his father’s reaction on this, now Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati has tweeted with suggestive words.
What did Shahu Maharaj say?
In his response to the media, Shahu Maharaj said that there was no discussion with Sambhaji Raje about his candidacy. “His candidacy has been rejected personally. We would have had some discussions or he would have agreed with them or not. Something would have happened. But since there was no such discussion, it is not about insulting the family. This is politics. If he had come to me, it would have been a different issue. But none of that has happened,” said Shahu Maharaj.
Furthermore, “His efforts to enter the Rajya Sabha began in January. He had no idea what his plan was. Even then there was no discussion. But he told me that he had decided to go there. I was against it, but being a democracy they can go anywhere. The draft was a draft. But it would have been definitive and then if the thought had changed, it can be said that the word has changed. But while the negotiations were going on, being in the draft stage, nothing was decided,” said Shahu Maharaj.
“I feel very bad, Chief Minister”, the strong feelings of Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati; He said, “My strength is not 42 MLA!”
Sambhaji Raje’s first reaction to the role of his father
Meanwhile, Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati’s first reaction came at a time when a huge political discussion about it was starting. “I have told the truth at the press conference remembering Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. I respect my father. I don’t want to comment on what he said,” Sambhaji Raje Chhatrapati said in his tweet.
At a press conference held by Sambhaji Raje on Friday, he criticized Prime Minister Uddhav Thackeray for breaking his promise regarding his candidacy. He had also announced that he would now not participate in the Rajya Sabha elections. After refusing to support Sambhaji Raje, Shiv Sena has given the candidacy to Sanjay Pawar of Kolhapur. From this sequence of events, various counter-claims have begun between Shiv Sena and Sambhaji Raje.
