Amidst the #MeToo movement across the nation which started with Tanushree Dutta’s allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar, now MNS chief Raj Thackeray has cleared the air over the issue and has called Nana Patekar ‘indecent’.
Although Raj believed that Nana Patekar is ‘crazy and indecent’ at times but said that he believes that the allegations surfaced against the actor-activist Nana Patekar of sexual harassment by actor Tanushree Dutta is false and Nana is innocent.
"I know Nana Patekar. He is indecent. He does crazy things but I don't think he can do such a thing. Court will look into it. What is the media to do with it? #MeToo is a serious matter, the debate over it on Twitter isn't right," the MNS chief said at an event here in Amravati.
Raj Thackeray added that women should speak up immediately against the oppression they are facing and should raise their voices as and when it happened and not after 10 years. He even said that MNS is always present to help women in any circumstances.
The MNS chief said “It seems it is being done to divert attention from petrol price, rupee value, and unemployment. If anything like #MeToo happens, women can come to MNS. We will teach a lesson to accused. Women must raise the voice when they face oppression, not after 10 years.”
