Kangana Ranaut vs Shiv Sena: Here's what happened in Uddhav Thackeray, Sharad Pawar meeting
The controversial razing of Kangana Ranaut’s office bungalow by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) appears to have created a lot of problem for Uddhav Thackerau led Maharashtra government.
Veteran NCP leader Sharad Pawar, a main ally in the coalition government in Maharashtra, stated during his meeting with CM Uddhav Thackeray that Kangana Ranaut should have been ignored, according to India Today TV.
If she had been ignored, the issue wouldn't have gone out of proportion, Sharad Pawar reportedly told Uddhav Thackeray.
The Maharashter Chief Minister then told Pawar that the action has to be taken sources said. Uddhav Thackeray also reportedly said during the meeting that the Maharashtra government was being systematically picked out on.
There is a concious attempt by the BJP to use “pawns like Kangana Ranaut” to malign the government over several issues, including Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, the Covid-19 pandemic and the Palghar lynching, Thackeray said.
“Everyone's image is being knowingly tarnished. We need to now act towards it,” Uddhav Thackeray is learnt to have said. Sharad Pawar backed Uddhav Thackeray’s also said that harsh majors should not be taken, added sources
The meeting happened on Wednesday, as soon as the Shiv Sena-controlled civic body, the BMC, started demolishing Kangana Ranaut’s office. The Bombay High Court later halted the demolition.
Another, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut was also present during the meeting. Sources said the demolition had nothing to do with the Sena dnd the BMC was an independent body.
Talking to the media on Wednesday, Sharad Pawar had said that the BMC move had given Kangana Ranaut "unnecessary publicity". The NCP leader had also said that there were many illegal constructions in Mumbai.
Earlier, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut had sparked a huge controversy by saying that Mumbai feels like PoK. After the demolition, she sharpened her attack on Uddhav Thackeray via video message.
