Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who is going to visit Mumbai on September 9, has been granted Y category security by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), said sources.
Kangana Ranaut is scheduled to land in Mumbai on September 9 amid the ongoing tussle with Maharashtra government and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut.
Sources have said, amid the ongoing confrontation with Shiv Sena leaders, Kangana Ranaut will be given Y category security. VIPs who enjoy Y category security in India have a security detail consisting 11 personnel, including commandos.
Reacting to the development on her security, Kangana Ranaut has thanked Home Minister Amit Shah. Kangana has said, “This is proof that no fascist forces will be able to suppress nationalist voices. I am indebted to Amit Shah, who could have also asked me to visit Mumbai later considering the present situation, but he honoured the words of a daughter of this country. Jai Hind.”
ये प्रमाण है की अब किसी देशभक्त आवाज़ को कोई फ़ासीवादी नहीं कुचल सकेगा,मैं @AmitShah जी की आभारी हूँ वो चाहते तो हालातों के चलते मुझे कुछ दिन बाद मुंबई जाने की सलाह देते मगर उन्होंने भारत की एक बेटी के वचनों का मान रखा, हमारे स्वाभिमान और आत्मसम्मान की लाज रखी, जय हिंद 🙏 https://t.co/VSbZMG66LT
