Sanjay Dutt: BJP's seats in Maharashtra must increase

Sanjay Dutt: BJP's seats in Maharashtra must increase

Actor Sanjay Dutt, who's been keeping a low profile after his release from jail in February this year, was the chief guest at the Maharashtra Day celebrations in Dindoshi, organised by BJP leader Mohit Kambhoj. Interestingly, several BJP leaders were critical of Dutt being granted parole and furlough when the actor was serving a five-year sentence for being in possession of an AK 56 rifle during the 1993 riots.

Dutt is no stranger to politics, and had hobnobbed with the Shiv Sena since 1993, when he was first arrested under TADA and the Arms Act for his alleged role in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. In 2009, he joined the Samajwadi Party, and was appointed its general secretary after he extensively campaigned during the Lok Sabha elections that year, only to dramatically announce he was quitting SP a year later after his "elder brother" Amar Singh was expelled.

On Sunday, as Dutt posed for photos with Kambhoj and the city BJP chief, Ashish Shelar, those in the political circles were reminded of the BJP's campaign against paroles and furlough granted to him. 

In 2014, senior BJP leader Kirit Somaiya wrote to the then chief minister Prithviraj Chavan that "not a single person or convict had been accorded such extraordinary special treatment or parole in the past 50 years."
