Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has condemned Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut's derogatory remarks against Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut. Kangana's statement about Mumbai is wrong, we oppose it but nevertheless hit out at Raut.
Taking to Twitter, Nirupam said, "Kangana Ranaut's comment on Mumbai is unacceptable for all of us. We all condemned it. But the Shiv Sena took the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and used foul language for Kangana, this is despicable of Shiv Sena. It is an insult to the Maharaj that his name is being taken to publicly abuse anyone. People in government should condemn this conduct."
Kangana Ranaut's tweets comparing Mumbai city to Pakistan occupied Kashmir has angered many politicians, actors and citizens. After the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, actress Kangana Ranaut said she feared Mumbai Police more than the "movie mafia".
Sanjay Raut threatened Kangana not to return to Mumbai after the actor compared Mumbai with Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
Kangana said that Sanjay Raut had threatened her not to come back to Mumbai, "Sanjay Raut Shiv Sena leader has given me an open threat and asked me not to come back to Mumbai, after Aazadi graffitis in Mumbai streets and now open threats, why Mumbai is feeling like Pakistan occupied Kashmir?"
कंगना रनावत ने मुंबई पर जो टिप्पणी की,वह हम सबको अमान्य है।उसकी सबने निंदा की।— Sanjay Nirupam (@sanjaynirupam) September 6, 2020
मगर शिवसेना ने छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज का नाम लेकर कंगना को हरामखोर कहा,यह शिवसेना की नीचता है।
उनके नाम पर सरेआम गाली-गलौज करना महाराज का अपमान है।
सरकार में बैठे लोगों को इस आचरण की निंदा करनी चाहिए।
