In the latest political backlash over Kangana’s remarks equating Mumbai with Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation, on Tuesday served a ‘stop-work’ notice to Ranaut for her alleged unauthorised construction at her office in Mumbai. Shiv Sena controlled BMC demolished ‘illegal alterations’ at Ranaut’s office.
Kangana, who was on her way to Mumbai from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh, tweeted photographs of the demolition drive. While Ranaut was yet to reach Mumbai at the time of the BMC drive, her lawyer filed a plea in Bombay High Court challenging BMC’s decision to undertake a demolition drive.
“I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now,” Ranaut said, reiterating her reference to PoK.
A massive political row has erupted over Ranaut’s ‘PoK’ remarks and state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had asked the Queen actor to not return to Mumbai if she felt that the city was not safe.
“A girl (Kangana Ranaut ) from another State comes here to earn a livelihood and Mumbai accepts her but she insults the Mumbai Police. This is sad. What she said is irresponsible. If you insult Maharashtra, people will not tolerate it. Maharashtra belongs to the BJP too, all parties should condemn her,” he had earlier said.
