Shiv Sena leader and Forest Minister Sanjay Rathore, who went into hiding after the alleged suicide case of Pooja Chavan, finally came to light after 15 days. After visiting Pohardevi, Rathore broke his silence while interacting with the media. He defended himself by saying that he had been destroying my social, political and personal life for the last 30 years through baseless allegations.
Sanjay Rathore further said, “The entire Banjara community is saddened by the unfortunate death of a young woman in Pune and we all share in the grief of the family.” However, the manner in which dirty politics and defamation have been attempted for the last 10 days is very unfortunate. There is no fact in what the media is trying to show through social media. The Chief Minister has directed the police to investigate the matter. Then the police investigation will reveal everything, but don’t slander my family and society, requested Sanjay Rathore.

It was claimed that I was in hiding because of this case. But I was at home for 10 days, not 14 days. Was taking care of my family. Government work also starts from a flat in Mumbai.
I come from a backward class family and am an activist leading OBC. I have been elected 4 times. My community loves me. I have been working with everyone in the social and political spheres for the last 30 years. Many people are taking photos with me at various events. But due to an incident, I am being kept in the cage of the accused. Consciously trying to ruin my social and political life. Then see if the truth comes out of the inquiry, said Sanjay Rathod emphatically.
Pooja Chavan, a young woman living in Pune with her brother for a spoken English class, committed suicide by jumping from the third floor of a building in Pune on February 7. After 11 audio clips of the case went viral on social media, the BJP is demanding that a case be filed against state forest minister Sanjay Rathore.
