New Delhi : Sanjay Raut, who recently warned Kangana Ranaut and advised her of staying out from Maharashtra, has been appointed chief spokesperson of the Shiv Sena.

The Rajya Sabha member had recently lashed out at Kangana Ranaut over her comments comparing Maharashtra to Pakistan occupied Kashmir and had warned her not to return to Mumbai.

Sanjay Raut, also the executive editor of Shiv Sena mouthpiece ''Saamana'', will lead a team of spokespersons that includes Lok Sabha MPs Arvind Sawant and Dhairyasheel Mane and Rajya Sabha member Priyanka Chaturvedi.

Though Sanjay Raut has not apologized to Kangana Ranaut till date for his remark, but during an interview he accepted that his choice of words could have been better.

"I may have made a mistake," Sanjay Raut told NDTV.

"Kangana also makes these mistakes, we have seen several times," he added, apparently referring to the 33-year-old actor's comments about feeling unsafe in Mumbai.

"I said if you don't have faith in Mumbai police and administration, if you call our police mafia, then why do you stay here?"
