Sharad Pawar Questions BMC’s Demolition Of Kangana Ranaut’s Property
NCP President says “undue importance” has been given to actress’s statements.
Sharad Pawar, President of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and an ally in the ruling Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra Government, has finally broken his silence over the row between Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena. Pawar has said that the party has given “undue importance” to her statements. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had started a demolition drive at her Mumbai property on Tuesday, citing “illegal construction.” The Bombay HC has issued a stay on it for now.
After a meeting that he had with Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, Pawar said, “I don’t know if there was anything illegal (about the office)…It won’t be appropriate to comment on this without having proper information. Illegal construction isn’t a new thing in Mumbai. In view of the prevalent situation, the BMC’s actions give space to raise doubt in people’s minds. However, BMC has its own rules and officers may have found it appropriate to take the action.”
