Devendra Fadnavis Aims Jibe At Maharashtra Government Over Kangana Tussle
Former CM said, “You don’t go to demolish Dawood’s home, but want to demolish the actor’s house.”
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has aimed a jibe at the Maharashtra Government over its ongoing tussle with Kangana Ranaut. The Bollywood actor’s property in Mumbai was partly demolished by the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) before the Bombay High Court interfered and ordered a stay on the demolition. Referring to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, the ex-CM said, “You don’t go to demolish Dawood’s home, but want to demolish the actor’s house.”
Fadnavis also brought up the topic of rising COVID-19 positive cases in the state of Maharashtra. The 50-year-old BJP leader said, “Maharashtra government thinks the state is not fighting coronavirus… rather actor Kangana. Today, the highest number of coronavirus cases are in Maharashtra. Every day, a surge between 23,000-25,000 cases is being recorded. Forty per cent of COVID-linked deaths in the country are being recorded from Maharashtra.” He added, “But Maharashtra government doesn’t want to fight it… they are fighting Kangana. I want to tell them… as much energy they are wasting on fighting the actor, even if they spend half of it to control the outbreak, the state can save many lives.”
