On Wednesday, Kangana Ranaut approached the Bombay High Court challenging the notice issued by the Mumbai civic body for ‘illegal construction’ at her bungalow in Mumbai and sought a stay on the demolition process. This happened after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday demolished “illegal alterations” at the Bandra bungalow of Ranaut, a civic official said.
He also said that the high court is likely to; take up the plea for hearing during the course of the day. Plus, the ruling Shiv Sena which also controls the BMC has showered sharp criticisms on recent remarks of Ranaut; in which she compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). She has alleged that the Maharashtra government is targeting her because of her fight with the Shiv Sena.
On Tuesday the BMC pasted a stop-work notice at the actor’s bungalow at Pali Hill in suburban Bandra.
The civic body claimed that during the regular inspection it found several illegal constructions; and modifications have been carried out without taking necessary approvals from the civic body. On Tuesday BMC also filed a ‘caveat’ in a local court, saying it should; be heard first if Ranaut challenges the stop-work notice issued to her. A caveat is a request to a court that no order should; be passed without hearing the person/party which files it.
On 10th September, Kangana took on the Maharashtra government by castigating Chief Minister Y-plus category security; posed a series of tweets comparing the BMC goons; terming the state government a “milavat” sarkar and recalling Marathi culture and pride.
