In his letter, Sanjay Raut stated that people like Rane who use objectionable language do not deserve to be in the Union Cabinet.

"The words used by Narayan Rane for Maharashtra Chief Minister during his press conference are condemnable. People like him, who do not know their limits and use such objectionable language, do not deserve to be in the Cabinet. This is an insult to our Prime Minister as well," he said in his letter.
