NEWS KANANGA PAWAR
MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has created another sensation when she revealed that the building she lives in Mumbai “belongs to Sharad Pawar”, the NCP leader.
Pawar was quick to reject the statement, saying there was no truth in this. However, many senior politicians have huge investments in real estate with the corrupt money they make in crores. India is famously on a big loot by politicos and bureaucrats, and such elements are lurking in every corner. No government deal is today complete without payment of bribes. Politicians across the board are largely corrupt and the legal mechanisms are failing to catch up with them.
Sharad Pawar is allegedly among the most corrupt politicians in the country and his family has amassed huge wealth in Pune, in fact large parts of the city, and has huge investments in Mumbai as also elsewhere in western Maharashtra, his home turf. Prime Minister Modi had at a public meeting in Maharashtra described the NCP as the Nationalist Corruption Party. The NCP is part of the present ruling coalition headed by the Shiv Sena, of which the Congress party is another partner.Ranaut is currently having a verbal duel with the Shiv Sena leader and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, and his men.
In the verbal war, she likened Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and criticised the city police. “This was not just to me but to entire building and this is not my flat issue but a building issue which builder needs to deal with and this building belongs to Sharad Pawar. We bought the flat from his partner so he is answerable for this not me,” Ranaut tweeted on Wednesday, in reply to a post. Kangana Ranaut, 33, is top Bollowood actress and filmmaker . She is recipient of several awards, including three National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards, andhas featured six times in Forbes India ‘s Celebrity List. She hails from Himachal Pradesh.
The tweet she replied to claimed a notice was issued to her flat in the building, ‘DB Breeze’, in 2018 and not for her bungalow in Pali Hill, “illegal” parts of which were razed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation on Wednesday. Asked by media persons about the actress’s claim, Pawar dismissed the same. “It is my wish somebody names a building after me,” Pawar said sarcastically, reported PTI news agency. “…Now it is a question whom we should expect to speak responsibly. But there is no substance in it (the claim made by the actress),” Pawar added. — IHN-NN
