Shabana: “What a sorry state of affairs! CM buys patriotism for 5 crores!’

shabana-azmiVeteran actress Shabana Azmi has criticised Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, saying he “brokered deal” with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena instead of enforcing law and order, amid the row around the release of Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.

“What a sorry state of affairs! CM brokers deal and buys patriotism for 5 crores! After Home minister had promised peaceful passage for #ADHM,” Azmi, 66, posted on Twitter.

“Sangh Parivar speaks in different voices most blatant expression is CM MHRSTA brokering deal with MNS instead of enforcing law and order for ADHM release.”

Further slamming MNS, Azmi said that the party of noone to decide people’s patriotism.

“MNS will decide whether I am patriotic or not? I bow to the Indian Constitution, Raj Thackeray does not. Whose patriotism needs questioning?”

“CM Fadnavis shows scant respect for Home Minister’s assurance of safe passage for #ADHM. BJP better haul him up and demand explanation.”
