Mandi Member of Parliament Ram Swaroop Sharma on Tuesday raised the issue of treatment meted out to Bollywood actor Kanagna Ranaut by Shiv Sena led Maharashtra government.
“The Shiv Sena is no longer a Sena of Shivaji Maharaj but Congress,” Sharma alleged, pointing to the demolition of her Mumbai office last week by Sena-led BMC.
Sharma was speaking in the Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha on the day Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan took on BJP MP Ravi Kishen for his statement in the Lower House over drug abuse in Bollywood Monday.
Speaking during the Zero Hour on Tuesday, actor-turned politician Ravi Kishan demanded strict action against drug abusers in the film world.
“Conspiracy is being hatched to destroy country’s youth, our neighbouring countries are contributing . Smuggling of drugs from Pakistan and China is done every year…it is brought via Punjab and Nepal,” Ravi Kishan alleged.
Veteran actor Jaya Bachchan responded to that on Tuesday saying that the film industry was being defamed by some people from the entertainment industry.
Although she took no names, her remarks come a day after Ravi Kishan remarks about drug addiction in the film industry and actor Kangana’s repeated statements against Bollywood , including calling it a “gutter”.
