Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not call himself a ‘fakir’ now with the addition of a “Rs 12 crore” car in his cavalcade.

In his weekly column ‘Rokhthok’ in the Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, Raut also praised former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru for always using an Indian-made car and late PM Indira Gandhi for not replacing her security guards despite a threat to her life.

A Mercedes-Maybach S650 Guard was recently added to the prime minister’s cavalcade by the Special Protection Group
