Narayan Rane was arrested on Tuesday following his remarks that he would have slapped Chief Minister Thackeray for what he claimed as the latter’s ignorance of the year of India’s independence.
He was granted bail by a court at Mahad in Raigad district late Tuesday night.
“Satyamev Jayate” (truth always prevails), the Union MSME minister had tweeted after getting bail.
He faces four FIRs in Maharashtra over his remarks, which triggered a political row and protests across the state on Tuesday.
