BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday tweeted his support to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut as she is engaged in a bitter dispute with the Shiv-Sena government in Maharashtra.
“Tell Kangana to keep the faith. We are with her in this struggle,” BJP leader tweeted.
His tweet comes right after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) today demolished “illegal alterations” at the Bandra office of Kangana.
The actress also took to Twitter to share photographs of the BMC demolishing, and react to it. She said, “I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now.”
The incident sparked massive outrage as state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had asked the actress to not return to Mumbai if she felt that the city was not safe. He said,
“A girl (Kangana Ranaut ) from another State comes here to earn a livelihood and Mumbai accepts her but she insults the Mumbai Police. This is sad. What she said is irresponsible. If you insult Maharashtra, people will not tolerate it. Maharashtra belongs to the BJP too, all parties should condemn her.”
Moreover, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has said that Mumbai gave a lot to Kangana Ranaut and she is now working to besmirch the name of Mumbai and Mumbai Police.
However, The Bombay High Court admitted Kangana Ranaut’s plea against the demolition of her office at Mumbai by the BMC and has ordered a stay on the drive. A bench of the High Court also asked the BMC to file a reply to her petition in the matter.
Amid all this, The Ministry of Home Affairs approved Y-plus security to Kangana after she received threats for comparing Mumbai to POK.
