Mumbai: Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut wrote to opposition parties, thanking them for standing by his side. Raut is currently under Enforcement Directorate's (ED) custody in connection with an alleged money laundering case, PTI reported.
In the letter, signed by Raut and released by Sena MP and spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi on Friday, the leader thanked leaders of all opposition parties, including the Congress, NCP, TMC, DMK, AAP, CPI and CPI (M), for supporting him.
"The toughest times show you who your reliable allies are," Raut wrote. "I am thankful for the overwhelming support given to me during the political witch-hunt and motivated attack directed against me by the central government through central agencies. My fight will continue for what is right. Neither will I bow down to pressure, nor will it break my resolve to see this fight through," the letter read.
Raut, the Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha member, was arrested on August 1 by ED ED in a case related to alleged irregularities in the redevelopment of Patra Chawl, a row tenement in suburban Goregaon. A court extended his ED custody up to August 8.
