Sawant tweeted, in 2016, under the Devendra Fadnavis government, there was an attempt to assassinate retired army soldier Sonu Mahajan on the orders of BJP MP from Chalisgaon Unmesh Patil. The family had to move the High Court to register a case. Till date, the BJP has not taken any action against its own MP.
In another tweet, the Congress leader said, “Why is the BJP protecting its MP who has tried to attack an army soldier?” When will the Honorable Defense Minister call Sonu Mahajan's family and assure him of justice? The police did not arrest the accused just because he is an MP. We will take up this matter with the Mahavikas Aghadi government to provide justice to the jawan.
It is worth noting that a few days ago, some Shiv Sena activists beat up former Navy officer Madan Sharma for forwarding the cartoon of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Shiv Sena has been very angry about this incident. Those accused of assaulting the former officer were arrested, but got bail.
