Maharashtra Congress says will sue Kangana Ranaut for Gandhi remarks

Many on social media said that the “Padma Shri” award should be returned to Kangana Ranaut.

New Delhi:

The Maharashtra Congress – part of the state’s ruling coalition – has said that legal action will be taken against actress Kangana Ranaut for her derogatory remarks against Mahatma Gandhi. The party has decided to file a complaint against him with the Mumbai Police, state party chief Nana Patole was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Known for her inflammatory remarks, Kangana Ranaut was widely criticized for her “bhikh” (alms) remarks – this time directed against Mahatma Gandhi.

Last week, the actor had described India’s independence as “begging” and declared that independence came in 2014, when the Narendra Modi-led government came to power.

This time, sharing an old news clipping on Instagram titled “Gandhi, others agreed to hand over Netaji”, Ms Ranaut commented: “Either you are a Gandhi fan or a Netaji supporter You can’t be both … choose and decide”.

News clippings claimed that Mahatma Gandhi, along with Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohammad Ali Jinnah, had come to an agreement with a British judge that they would hand over freedom fighter Subhas Bose if he entered the country.

He also claimed that there is evidence that Mahatma Gandhi wanted Bhagat Singh to be hanged.

“They are the people who taught us, “If someone slaps you, you give another cheek for another slap” and thus you will get freedom. This is how no one gets freedom, that’s how one can beg. Choose your heroes wisely,” the 34-year-old posted.

Many on social media said he should return the “Padma Shri” award he received from President Ram Nath Kovind last week.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said such comments are made only for “propaganda”. Kumar said, “How can someone publish this? We shouldn’t even pay attention to it. Should we even pay attention to it? Such statements should not be given importance. In fact, it should be made fun of. “
