Kangana Ranaut continued her war of words with the ruling Maharashtra government and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Thursday, after the death toll in the Bhiwandi building collapse reportedly rose to 38.
Stating that the death toll in the building collapse was more than the number of “innocent lives lost” during the Pulwama terror attack, she blamed the Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut and the BMC for “negligence”.
“Uddhav Thackeray, Sanjay Raut @mybmc My house was being broken illegally, but it would have helped if you all paid so much attention to this building. Fifty people would have been alive today,” she said in a tweet.
Kangana went on to add, “Pakistan didn’t kill as many young people in the Pulwama attack as the many innocent people killed by your negligence in the Bhiwandi building collapse.”
According to reports, rescuers discovered 12 more bodies under the debris on Wednesday, more than 60 hours after the tragedy.
In a statement to TOI, Rajkumar Shinde, DCP, Zone-II, Thane police, said, “Till Wednesday evening, the rescue team had recovered 38 bodies, after which police used loudspeakers to appeal to people to come forward if they had any loved ones still buried in the debris. One family told us its 2-year-old son was missing. Operations are on to find the child.”
On Monday, Kangana slammed the government and said that if they weren’t “obsessed” with her, they would know “how the entire state is collapsing.”
“Meanwhile Maharashtra government क-क-क-क-कंगना ….. if they stop being obsessed with me they will know how the entire state is collapsing,” Kangana said in response to a tweet that alleged such incidents happen when the govt “has the time to dismantle @KanganaTeam’s office!”
The actress has been at loggerheads with the ruling government and the civic body after portions of her Bandra office were demolished. While the BMC cited ‘illegal alterations’ in their notice, the actress claimed she had all the necessary approvals.
