BJYM protests against Maharashtra Govt

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 11

The local unit of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) under the leadership of its state president Vijay Rana held a symbolic funeral rally of Shiv Sena chief and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and the Maharashtra Government and burnt their effigies. The protest was held to oppose the Maharashtra Government’s highhandedness against actress Kangana Ranaut in Mumbai.

Rana said the action being taken by the Maharashtra Government was vindictive and motivated by malicious objectives. He said Kangana Ranaut had only spoken the truth so that justice could be done in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. He asked why the ruling party in Maharashtra has problem with Kangana raising the issue of Bollywood mafia and the drug racket active in Mumbai.

He said the way Kangana was being threatened and intimidated by the Maharashtra Government and the ruling party leaders was totally condemnable and was an evidence of the shelter given to the mafias by the state government.

He said the entire country was with Kangana and watching the misdeeds of the Maharashtra Government. The way Kangana was being attacked was clearly a direct attack on the honour and dignity of every women and the BJYM stands strongly with Kangana in this fight.

He said the Congress and the NCP were equal shareholders in power and they could not escape their responsibility by remaining silent on the misconducts of the state government.

State BJP president Arun Sood also issued a statement saying that the action of the Maharashtra Government was totally illegal and against the spirit of the Constitution. He asked why the BMC demolished Kangana’s office when the Bombay High Court had already prohibited any kind of demolition till September 30 due to Covid-19. Finally, the High Court had to again step in to prohibit the vindictive action.

He said the media, regarded as the fourth pillar of the democracy, was also being targeted by the Maharashtra Government for exposing the truth. It’s totally strange that a case was filed against Kangana on just saying ‘Tu’ but those who hurled abuses at her are enjoying patronage of the state government. He said Uddhav Thackeray had lost every moral right to remain the Chief Minister for even a single moment.
