Sanjay Raut said, "Rahul Gandhi called and checked on me yesterday despite his busy schedule amid Bharat Jodo Yatra. He said we were concerned about your well-being & said take care, we will work together again."

The Shiv Sena leader further alleged that his friends in the BJP were happy when he was in Jail and said it was politics of the 'Mughal era'.

"Rahul Gandhi is one such person who stays connected as friends against ideological and political differences. I have friends in BJP as well but they were happy when I was in jail, this is politics of Mughal era."

This comes when the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance was in danger following Rahul Gandhi's remarks over Savarkar.

Rahul Gandhi had criticised Veer Savarkar and said he took mercy from the British while he was in jail. He also accused him of betraying legendary freedom icons like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel by appealing to the British.
