‘Demand for changing name is not Shiv Sena’s official stance’: Sanjay Raut on Karachi Sweets row
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Hours after a video showing a Shiv Sena leader asking a sweet shop owner to drop 'Karachi' from the outlet's name went viral on social media, party's MP Sanjay Raut on Thursday clarified the demand for changing the shop's name is not Shiv Sena's official stance.
Taking to twitter, Raut said that Karachi bakery and Karachi sweets have been in Mumbai since last 60 years and it makes no sense to ask for changing their names now.
