‘History Will Judge Your Silence’, Kangana Tells Sonia Gandhi
Actor Kangana Ranaut, at the centre of a row with the Maharashtra government, on Friday turned her attention to Congress president Sonia Gandhi to mention she must intervene and stop the harassment of ladies.
Ranaut, whose comment likening Mumbai to Pakistan occupied Kashmir triggered a spat with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena still as its coalition partners Congress and NCP, said history would judge Gandhi’s ‘silence and indifference’.
‘History will judge your silence and indifference when your own Government is harassing women and ensuring a complete mockery of law and order. I hope you may intervene @INCIndia,’ she added in another tweet.
Ranaut, often within the news for her provocative statements, said Gandhi had grown up within the west and lived in India and must bear in mind the struggles of ladies.
‘Dear respected honorable @INCIndia president Sonia Gandhi Ji being a lady aren’t you anguished by the treatment i’m given by your government in Maharashtra? are you able to not request your Government to uphold the principles of the Constitution given to us by Dr. Ambedkar?’ the actor posted on Twitter.
Ranaut’s office here faced action for “illegal” alterations by Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old actor has been aggressively criticizing the Maharashtra government on Twitter since she returned to the town from her home state Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday, soon after the civic authorities demolished portions of her office.
On Thursday, Ranaut took on the Maharashtra government by castigating Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for ‘misusing power’ and declaring that her voice won’t be suppressed.
The ‘Queen’ actor Kangana Ranaut , who has been given Y-plus category security, posted a series of tweets comparing the BMC to goons, terming the authorities a ‘milavat sarkar’ and recalling Marathi culture and pride.
Later within the day, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale met Ranaut at her residence in Khar here and alleged that the BMC demolition drive at her bungalow in Bandra was applied in an exceedingly sentiment of revenge and therefore the Maharashtra government, too, had a job to play.
