Mumbai, Apr 16 UNI | 3 months ago

After joining the Nationalist Congress Party fold, five-time MP Mohan Raole returned to the Shiv Sena yesterday.

Speaking to mediapersons yesterday before a welcome by party president Uddhav Thackeray at a public rally in south Mumbai Rawale said, 'it is true that I had left the Shiv Sena due to certain issues. However, I am a Shiv Sainik to the core and I cannot live without the party. Shiv Sena is like my breath and was hard to stay away for long.

When asked about the allegations he had made against the party and party leadership when expelled, Rawale clarified that he had criticized only the party and not party leader Uddhav Thackeray, however he did not elaborate much.

He also further clarified that he did not have any problems or complaints against the NCP or Sharad Pawar, but 'could not live without Shiv Sena'.
