Is COVID-19 Issue Taking A Backseat In Maharashtra?
Is the Uddhav Thackeray government busier with Bollywood matters rather than focusing on the pandemic?
As the Kangana controversy seems to be taking centre stage for the Maharashtra government, the focus has unfortunately shifted away from the raging and still rampant Coronavirus crisis.
After the actress’s posh office was partially demolished by the Mumbai civic authorities two days ago, the fight is now clearly political. Rajya Sabha member Ramdas Athawale condemned the destructive measures by the Uddhav Thackeray government, calling it an act of revenge.
Meanwhile, a Mumbai-based lawyer filed a complaint against the Manikarnika actress for using inappropriate language against the state’s chief minister in her video. The matter will be heard on 22 September by the High Court.
Ranaut has been very vocal about her displeasure against the government. In her video, she addressed CM Uddhav Thackeray as an aide of the film mafia and said that it’s a matter of time before his pride crumbles. In a separate tweet, the film star called out the Shiv Sena for disrespecting the vision and ideals of their supremo Balasaheb Thackeray. She also took a jibe at Congress by calling the Shiv Sena a Sonia Sena.
As rightly pointed out by veteran politician and Shiv Sena ally Sharad Pawar, the issue of COVID-19 is still far from over and needs to be tackled with more attention, rather than delving into petty Bollywood related issues. The state accounts for close to 9.7 lakh infections and almost 28000 deaths from the virus.
