Actress KanganaRanaut has lashed out at Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray through a video posted on her social media platform.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray spoke at the annual Dussehra rally of the party on Sunday and referred to the actress’s infamous "PoK" tweet without taking her name. He said that “Mumbai is PoK, there are drug addicts everywhere – they are painting such a picture. They don’t know in our house we grow tulsi, not ganja. Ganja fields are in your state, you know where, not in our Maharashtra."
For this statement actress, KanganaRanaut has slammed Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for presenting the state of Maharashtra in a bad light just because he is annoyed with a woman of his son’s age. In her video, Kangana said “I have been called names by the members of the Sonia Sena. Honorable CM of Maharashtra let me tell you that by using such defamatory language for me and my state, you have shown the entire Maharashtra in a bad light. All this because you are upset with a woman who is of your son’s age.” On Monday the actress had hit back at Uddhav Thackeray in a series of tweets and called him a petty and vengeful person for his remarks about Himachal Pradesh. Kangana 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." She further added, "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 a large part of their exile in Himachal Pradesh." She concluded by writing that "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." Kangana also referred to the incident where Sanjay Raut called her "haramkhor" and said, "Raut called me Haramkhor now Uddhav 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." She then wrote, "Chief Minister I am not drunk on my father’s power and wealth like you, if I wanted to be a nepotism product I could have stayed back in Himachal, I hail from a renowned family, I didn’t want to live off on their wealth and favors some people have self-respect and self-worth.”
