Kangana on BMC demolition: ‘This is what Fascism looks like’

Mumbai, Sep 9 (IANS) Actress Kangana Ranaut reacted to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation procedure to demolish her Bandra property by once again comparing Mumbai to Pakistan, and by terming the act as death of democracy.

“There is no illegal construction in my house, also government has banned any demolitions in Covid till September 30, Bullywood watch now this is what Fascism looks like#DeathOfDemocracy,” Kangana wrote through her verified account.
“I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now #deathofdemocracy,” she wrote with one image.
In another image, she wrote: “Pakistan…. #deathofdemocracy”.
“Babur and his army #deathofdemocracy,” she wrote while sharing pictures of the demolition squad.
“As I am all set for Mumbai Darshan on my way to the airport, Maha government and their goons are at my property all set to illegally break it down, go on! I promised to give blood for Maharashtra pride, this is nothing take everything but my spirit will only rise higher and higher,” she added.
As per the notice, the violations include: merging of two bungalows, converting a ground-floor toilet into an office cabin, converting a storeroom into a kitchen, making an unauthorised pantry in the ground floor, adding toilets near the storeroom and a parking area, illegal partitions in first floor living room, an illegal meeting room in the pooja room, converting a balcony into a habitable area besides a floor extension, etc.

Prasoon Joshi: Stay strong @KanganaTeam you have the inner strength to see you through the toughest of times #KanganaRanaut.
Renuka Shahane: Though I did not like @KanganaTeam ‘s comment comparing Mumbai to POK I am appalled by the revenge demolition carried out by @mybmc You do not have to stoop so low. @CMOMaharashtra please intervene. There is a pandemic we are dealing with. Do we need this unnecessary drama?
Dia Mirza: I don’t agree with many of the things Kangana has said in the last few months. The name calling, the vicious personal attacks on individuals, the vilification of people. At the same time I am not okay with her being subjected to personal attacks.
Ankita Lokhande: BRAVEHEART Exorbitant love & More Power to you @KanganaTeam
Sonal Chauhan: Breaking somebody’s dream, is NOT what I will ever support. I do not support @KanganaTeam ‘s office being demolished. What’s wrong is wrong!!!
Vivek Agnihotri: This is the NAUGHTIEST Govt in the history of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s, Babasheb Ambedkar and Balasaheb’s great Maharashtra.
Rahul Dholakia: It’s principally wrong and against Democracy to use power of a public office to get back at a person just because you don’t like what they say or do- How is this any different than the tactics used by a Govt of unleashing CBI, ED, Police or even mob lynchers to silence dissent ?
Rashami Desai: From Power to politics to drugs. The fight for Justice surely has turned too ugly to witness. Well! This “drama” is next level, totally lacking discipline and rules. And there is more to come. #shame #DeathOfDemocracy.
Himanshi Khurana: What’s going on in Mumbai.. #BMC should wait atleast…. where’s the democracy.. this is wrong… to demolish anyone’s dream house/office #DeathOfDemocracy.
The bungalow, which the “Queen” star had bought three years ago, is listed as a residential property by the BMC.
Meanwhile, the actress is on her way to Mumbai amid an escalating war of words with the ruling Shiv Sena leaders.
