Sanjay Dutt to join politics again on Sept 25, claims Maharashtra minister

Mumbai, Aug 26 (IANS): Maharashtra's ruling coalition partner Rashtriya Samaj Paksha (RSP) chief and state Minister Mahadev Jankar on Sunday created a flutter by claiming that Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt would join his party on September 25.

His statement came at the RSP's 16th Foundation Day celebrations in presence of Rural Development Minister Pankaja Munde.

At the event, a video clip of Dutt was played in which he said: "I congratulate RSP National President Mahadev Jankar, my friend and my brother. If I would have been here, I would have come."

Later, addressing the gathering at Shivaji Park, Jankar claimed: "Just now you heard the bytes of big boss...big brother. Sanjay Dutt has given September 25 day to join (RSP). He is in Dubai (today). Had he been in Mumbai, he would have definitely joined us."

In the past, on May 1, 2016, Dutt - released from jail after serving his sentence in the 1993 serial blasts case - had attended a BJP function at Dindoshi in north Mumbai, and speculation went rife that he would join the ruling party.

He had also urged the BJP to improve its tally in the next Lok Sabha elections, a fact viewed with trepidation by the Opposition Congress, since his late actor-parents, Union Minister Sunil Dutt and MP Nargis Dutt, and sister Priya Dutt had been diehard Congress' supporters since decades.

Jankar added that the RSP's influence had grown in the state and in next assembly elections, it would seek to contest at least 57 seats from the BJP.

An engineer hailing from the backward Dhangar community, Jankar was born in a poor family in Mann taluka of Satara district and was elected MLC with help of BJP-Shiv Sena.

Later, he told media persons that the party would expect at least 14 seats from the BJP given the (RSP)'s growing clout.

    His father's soul must be in great pain and the move put sister into embarrassing situation. A great opportunist ever emerged from the folds of great personalities.

    One thing we should appreciate this guy..had livid his life in daring facing all obstacles came in life. Involvement with drugs...underworld..
    Popular cine star..no one in his calibre...stayed in jail and many more.
    Still he come out to play new innings in politics and films. Done each and everything in life as he needed. His life is complete. Khan's should learn many things from him. Salman afraid to sneak inside prison.

    Comparing Salman Khan, do you think Sanjay Dutt entered jail voluntarily? He rolled all stones to stay out. But Indian laws are good when it comes to terrorism.

    He put behind bar due to his father's wrong move. Mumbai riots happened not due to demolition of babri masjid..in december. After two months people from D-Gang on lang grabbing..bhaiyyas who living in plot from long burnt to death inside there home. Spark spreaded over and even in Behram pada..a stone throw away from kala nagar residence of thackeray. As a congress leader Sunil Dutt come forward to help people from behrampada...which irritated shiv sena much. As sanjay already holding AK-56 at his pali hill bunglow given by Azamgarh Abu Salem revolt by shiv sena fiercely to send him to jail. After some years sunil dutt wants to visit mathorshree to seek intervention by Thackeray Sr. for intervention to reduce the charges.

    Forget about how the riots started.
    Possession of AK-56 in India by any individual is a crime. And procuring the same gun through terrorist connection is bigger crime. So accept the fact that your hero is infact a villain!
