Sanjay Raut calls BJP's support to Kangana Ranaut 'unfortunate'
Mumbai : Shiv Sena MP on Sunday said that it is unfortunate to know that BJP is backing up Kangana Ranaut, who compared Mumbai with PoK; he also added that the BJP's action are influenced due to Bihar elections.
In his weekly column Rokhthok in Sena mouthpiece ''Saamana'', Sanjay Raut also claimed there is a systematic effort to reduce the importance of Mumbai, and constantly defaming the city is part of that conspiracy.
"This is a difficult period when all Marathi people in Maharashtra should unite," Sanjay Raut said.
By supporting Kangana Ranaut and taking stand for Sushant Singh Rajput, BJP wants to bank votes in Bihar.
"While doing this, it doesn't matter if Maharashtra is insulted. Not one Maharashtra (BJP) leader was sad over the manner in which the state has been humiliated," Sanjay Raut said.
"An actress humiliates the chief minister and people of the state shouldn't react, what kind of one-sided freedom is this?" asked Sanjay Raut, who is the executive editor of Saamana.
"When her illegal construction in the city, which she calls as Pakistan, is demolished, she calls the demolished structure Ram mandir. You are crying hoarse when there is a surgical strike on the illegal construction. What kind of a game is this?" he asked.
