A fortnight after actor Sanjay Dutt irked several Congress leaders for attending a BJP event on the occasion of Maharashtra Day, his sister and senior Congress leader Priya Dutt met with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray at his residence ‘Matoshree’.
Sources in the Congress said that the party was “not happy” with Priya Dutt, a former Member of Parliament, meeting with Uddhav Thackeray, especially when the party had launched a campaign against the Sena and the BJP to “highlight their misrule in the BMC” a senior Congress leader said.
Dutt told PTI that she did not discuss politics with Uddhav during a meeting that lasted more than 30 minutes. “There was nothing political in our meeting. I met him owing to personal relation,” she said.
