Kangana says Shiv Sena turning into ‘Sonia Sena’ for power, attacks BMC over demolition


The war of words between Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and the Shiv Sena has taken a serious turn after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolished a part of her bungalow at Pali Hill in Bandra, Mumbai on Wednesday.

In a fresh attack on the BMC and the Shiv Sena, Kangana Ranaut said on Thursday that the party is ready to sell its ideology for power and become “Sonia Sena” from Shiv Sena”.

Kangana Ranaut went on to refer BMC officials as “goons” after the partial demolition of her office in Mumbai.

“The ideology on which Balasaheb Thackeray build the Shiv Sena, the party, today, is ready to sell its ideology and become “Sonia Sena” from “Shiv Sena”, Kangana Ranaut said in a tweet early Thursday.

Calling BMC officials ‘goons’, Kangana Ranaut said: “The goons who demolished my house behind my back, don’t call them civic body.”

“Because of these petty crimes that they do, Devendra Fadnavis ji must have suggested that the BJP does alliance with them. One must never succumb to bullies. after loosing elections Shiv Sena shamelessly made milavat sarkar and turned in to Sonia Sena,” Ranaut said in another tweet.

Further said attacking the Shiv Sena, she said: “Your father’s good deeds can only give you wealth but respect, you have to gain yourself. How many mouths you’ll shut? How many voices you’ll suppress? For how long you’ll run away from the truth?”

On Wednesday, the BMC pulled down “most of” the alleged illegal alterations at the Bandra bungalow of Kangana Ranaut by the time the Bombay High Court ordered a stay on the process, officials said.

According to a civic official, the demolition at Ranaut’s Pali Hill office started around 11 am and continued for the next one-and-a-half hours, till the high court passed the order.

The BMC said that the demolition work was carried on the illegal alterations in the bungalow, however, the actor and her lawyer claimed that the corporation was lying and she was being targeted because she spoke against ‘movie mafia’ in ‘Bullywood’.

Kangana had earlier mentioned NCP chief Sharad Pawar saying: “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.”

In a series of tweets, Kangana Ranaut accused Uddhav Thackeray of cruelty and compared her plight with Kashmiri Pandits.

The bitter spat between Kangana Ranaut and the Shiv Sena erupted after the actress made a controversial “Mumbai feels like PoK” remark.

In her tweets earlier, Kangana had targeted the Mumbai Police which had frowned Shiv Sena leaders, Since then, the two have been at loggerheads.
