In her two-page letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi which is on Twitter, Patker mentioned that she used to write columns for Saamna and also used to take care of Rajya Sabha work for Raut, however when she decided to leave, she was allegedly heckled by Raut who was not happy with her exit.

Patker, who is a renowned psychologist and producer of the Marathi film Balkadu (biopic of Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray), appealed to the PM for justice and security against Raut. She said she had complained to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, and ex-Home Minister Anil Deshmukh but all her pleas went ignored. Her note to the PM also accuses NCP leader Supriya Sule of making ‘matters worse’ for her after she talked to her about what she was allegedly going through.

Meanwhile, Kangana’s tiff with Sanjay Raut began when he used derogatory language against the actor and asked her to never return to Mumbai. Later, the Thalaivi star also accused Raut of having a hand in manipulating BMC to demolish her office space in Mumbai’s Bandra area. Kangana has been talking against the policies and decisions of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government.
On Monday, after Anil Deshmukh resigned from the post of State Home Minister, Kangana tweeted to say that the ones who insult women can never enjoy power. “Jo Saadhuon ki hatya aur stree ka apmaan kare, uska patan nishchit hai. #AnilDeshmukh ye toh sirf shuruat hai, aage-aage dekho hota hai kya #UddhavThackeray” (Those who lynch the Sadhus and insult women suffer a tragic downfall. Anil Deshmukh, this is just the beginning) she wrote in her tweet.
