The NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) chief Sharad Pawar on Friday elucidated that he has no connection with the building that houses Kangana Ranaut’s office in Mumbai that used to be partially toppled by the BMC recently after the actor’s controversial comments.
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials toppled portions of Ranaut’s property, alleging structural violations, a day after issuing her a notice. The actor’s recent remark where she compared Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and criticised the city police kick-started a controversial storm in the nation, with many coming out in reinforce of Ranaut.
As per reports, Ranaut had said the building that housed her office, belongs to the NCP chief. Pawar, alternatively, denied the claim.
“I haven’t any connection with the building, which used to be toppled by BMC. Her allegations against me are completely false,” NCP chief said, as quoted by ANI.
Ever since the demolition drive, Ranaut has been in a midst of a political drama with Maharashtra state government after the actor made remarks in Susant Singh Rajput’s death case.
“The decision used to be taken by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). State government had no role in it. BMC did it following its rules and regulations,” Pawar added.
Following the controversial row, the Union home ministry given Ranaut Y-plus category security.
