Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt refutes media reports, says he has no plans of joining politics

Earlier, media reports have claimed that Sanjay Dutt will be joining the Rashtriya Samaj Paksha headed by Maharashtra minister Mahadev Jankar.

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has put all rumours to rest after he clarified that he has no plans of re-joining politics. Wishing the Rashtriya Samaj Paksha chief, Mahadev Jankar all the luck for the upcoming assembly elections and his future endeavours, Dutt in a statement cleared that he has no plans to join any party.

Reports had emerged earlier today claiming that Dutt will soon be joining Rashtriya Samaj Paksha (RSP), a BJP ally in Maharastra. The RSP is a junior ally of the ruling BJP in Maharashtra.

The party founder and Cabinet minister in Maharashtra government, Mahadev Jankar, on Sunday, had claimed that Sanjay Dutt was set to re-enter politics by joining the Rashtriya Samaj Paksha (RSP). Mahadev Jankar said the RSP was tapping the film industry to expand his party.

“We have started working in the film sector as well to expand our party. As part of which, actor Sanjay Dutt is also joining the Rashtriya Samaj Paksha on September 25,” said Jankar, who is the Minister of Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development in Maharashtra government.

Earlier in the day, reports of Sanjay Dutt campaigning for the RSP in the upcoming Maharashtra elections had emerged. However, there was no official confirmation from Sanjay Dutt’s side as he had not released any press statement regarding his re-entry into electoral politics until now.

In 2009, Sanjay Dutt had joined Samajwadi Party (SP) as a candidate to contest from the Lucknow Lok Sabha constituency but withdrew after the court refused to suspend his conviction under the Arms Act. However, he was later appointed as the general secretary of the SP but resigned and had subsequently quit the party.
