Kangana Ranaut celebrates Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's resignation after prophesying his fall in 2020; Watch video
Kangana Ranaut celebrates the resignation of Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's resignation. Likens her words from 2020 to J.P. Narayan and his call for 'total revolution' in 1975
The actress who has time and again spoken against the Shiv Sena regime in the state, posted a video and celebrated the Chief Minister’s resignation and called it a the most ‘crucial phase for Indian democracy’ after 1975, referring to the Indira Gandhi Emergency era.
Kangana in her video drew a parallel between the fall of Indira Gandhi’s regime after J.P. Narayan ’s call for ‘total revolution’ and her predicting the fall of the Shiv Sena government in 2020. The actress referred to Hindi poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar's poem Singhasan Khaali Karo Ke Janata Aaati Hai which was read by J.P. Narayan at the Ramlila Maidan and how it empowered the people of the nation in 1975 and referenced to her own words from 2020 where she had called out Uddhav Thackeray saying, ‘aaj mera ghar toota hai, kal tera ghamand tootega’.
The Manikarnika actress’ office at Pali Hill in Bandra was bulldozed by the BMC in 2020 alleging a notice of illegal construction. The incident had led to a war of words between her and many politicians of the ruling Shiv Sena party.
Uddhav Thackeray’s resignation comes after the Supreme Court refused to order a stay on the Floor Test as per Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari’s direction to the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government.
Uddhav Thackeray will continue to serve his duties a CM till alternate arrangements are made.
