Actor Kangana Ranaut on Monday launched a no holds barred attack on Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and went on to call him the “…the worse product of nepotism”. The attack came after Uddhav Thackeray had taken a dig at Kangana Ranaut on Sunday.
The CM, without naming Kangana, had on Sunday said: “People who have no means of livelihood in their home come to Mumbai and betray it. Calling Mumbai PoK is in fact the failure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He had said he would get back PoK into India.”
In response, Kangana Ranaut posted a series of tweets attacking the Maharashtra CM. She also took umbrage at Thackeray’s reference to ‘ganja fields’ in Himachal Pradesh and said it is actually ‘dev bhoomi’—the land of the God.
What did Kanagana Ranaut say?
Kangana posted a series of tweets attacking the Maharashtra CM and also published a video taking Uddhav Thackeray head-on.
She tweeted: “Chief Minister you are a very petty person, Himachal is called Dev Bhumi it has the maximum number of temples also no zero crime rate, yes it has a very fertile land it grows apples, kiwis, pomegranate, strawberries one can grow anything here.”
“You being a leader having such a vengeful, myopic and ill-informed views about a state which has been the abode of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati along with many great saints like Markandya and Manu Rishi, Pandavas spent large part of their exile in Himachal Pardesh.”
The actor said: “You should be ashamed of yourself chief minister, being a public servant you are indulging in petty fights, using your power to insult, damage and humiliate people who don’t agree with you, you don’t deserve the chair you have acquired by playing dirty politics. SHAME.”
“I am overwhelmed at this open bullying by a working CM so there is a typo in first tweet, it should be no crime in Himachal, yes clarifying again we don’t have poor or very rich people or any crimes in Himachal, it’s a spiritual place with very innocent and kind people.”
She further said: “Look at the audacity of a working CM he is dividing the country who has made him Maharashtra ka thekedaar? He is just a public servant there was someone else before him soon he will be out someone else will come to serve the state, why is he behaving like he owns Maharashtra?”
“Just how beauty of Himalayas belongs to every Indian, opportunities that Mumbai offers too belongs to each one of us, both are my homes, Uddhav Thackeray don’t you dare to snatch our democratic rights and divide us, your filthy speeches are a vulgar display of your incompetence.”
Kangana said: “Raut (Sanjay Raut) called me Haramkhor now Uddhav (Thackeray) called me namak haram, he is claiming I won’t get food in my state if Mumbai does not give me shelter, shame on you I am your son’s age this is how you speak to a self-made single woman, Chief Minister you are the worse product of nepotism.”
Notably, the tussle between Kangana Ranaut and the Maharashtra government began after the actor equated Mumbai with PoK.
