Mumbai, September 7
In an obvious jibe at Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut over her “Mumbai feels like PoK” feedback, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday stated some folks don’t have gratitude for town the place they earn their livelihood.
Meanwhile, a Maharashtra minister termed as politically motivated the Centre’s determination to supply Y-Plus class safety to Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut.
Kangana has been supplied with Y-plus class safety after she spoke about drug use in Bollywood, following the loss of life of fellow actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Relief and Rehabilitation Minister Vijay Wadettiwar stated the Centre’s determination was a “politically motivated move” and accused Kangana of being the BJP’s “parrot”.
“By giving security to Kangana, the Centre and the BJP have endorsed her comments against Mumbai Police and Maharashtra. This is betrayal of the people of the state,” he stated.
BJP chief Ram Kadam lately requested the Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra authorities to supply police safety to Kangana since “she wanted to expose the Bollywood drug nexus”.
Responding to Kadam’s tweet, the actor stated she feared Mumbai Police greater than the “movie mafia”, and would favor safety both from Himachal Pradesh or the Centre.
Ranaut is within the eye of the storm over her latest remarks on Mumbai and its police. “Why is Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir?” Ranaut had tweeted, inviting criticism from varied quarters.
She would require safety from Haryana or Himachal Pradesh Police and wouldn’t settle for safety from the Mumbai Police to show an alleged “drug mafia in Bollywood”, the award-winning actor had stated.
Speaking within the legislative meeting on the condolence movement, Thackeray, with out taking any names, stated, “Some people have gratitude towards the city where they live and earn their livelihood, but some don’t.”
The feedback got here when he was paying tributes to Anil Rathod, a former Shiv Sena MLA and minister who died lately.
“Anil bhaiyya came from Rajasthan and made Maharashtra his home. He was a hardcore Shiv sainik,” Thackeray stated. PTI
