Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Wednesday said that those questioning the Indian Army’s “surgical strikes” in PoK should be booked on sedition charge and added that the Army too should take action on such “traitors”.
Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, Raut said: “How can anyone talk like this about the Army? These people should not only be booked, but the Army should nab them and they should face a court martial,” he said.

Raut said no parties, including the BJP, should indulge in politics over the strikes.
The Sena MP praised Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, saying that he was “a young face in politics who is trying to develop Uttar Pradesh”.
“I saw a lot of ongoing development work in Lucknow. The metro rail project is in progress. There are other schemes too. I feel he (Akhilesh) is a good man who wants to work for the people,” Raut said.
He, however, added that the nepotism and corruption had risen and the law and order situation had worsened during the Samajwadi Party rule in the state.
On PM Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to a Ramlila in Lucknow on the occasion Dussehra, Raut said that as an NDA ally Shiv Sena welcomes his visit, but it should not happen just because elections are approaching in the the state. He said the PM should continue to make such visits in the coming years.
He said Sena will contest nearly 200 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls and try to win at least 25 seats to push its “pure Hindutva” agenda.
Raut said party chief Uddhav Thackeray will visit Varanasi in the coming days to launch the party’s poll campaign.
