Mumbai, Sep 14: Hours after Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut launched a fresh assault on Maharashtra, senior Shiv Sena leader and Transport Minister hit back, calling her a ‘dual personality’, here on Monday.
“She clearly has a dual personality and needs a doctor. Kangana is an actor and speaks according to the script given to her. Many such Kanganas have come and gone,” said Transport Minister Anil Parab, refusing to identify who prepared the ‘script’ for her.
On the much-publicised visit to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, Parab said: “Why should the Governor meet only Kangana? He should also meet the poor people whose illegal slums or roadside constructions are being demolished regularly.”
He wondered why the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party’s “stomach is churning” when the illegal construction of Kangana was razed.
Parab said that the party would not tolerate if she crosses limits and makes any wild statements about Mumbai or Maharashtra.
“We are within our limits…They should also observe the limits. We will not keep quiet if she keeps talking ill about Mumbai. If she thinks the city is like PoK, then she must decide if she still wants to live here…,” the minister said.
On Kangana’s fresh salvo after reaching Himachal Pradesh this morning, Parab noted that “this is her only job now”.
“That is okay. Because of this, her love for the city is known to the people clearly now,” said Parab.
When asked about Union Minister of State for Social Justice Ramdas Athawale’s visit to Kangana’s home to express solidarity, Parab dismissively remarked that the Republican Party of India (A) leader was “like a shop with half shutters down”.
