Maharashtra Congress threatens to stall Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar’s films for ignoring public causes – Times of India

The Maharashtra Congress on Thursday warned that it could cease capturing or screening of Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar’s films as “they have failed to speak up” on burning public points.

In a powerful assertion, state Congress President Nana Patole mentioned that the Bharatiya Janata Party authorities led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hiked petrol-diesel-fuel costs exorbitantly, whereas farmers have been protesting outdoors Delhi for the previous practically three months.

However, within the midst of these grave crises, many celebs together with Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay, who had raised their voices in opposition to the Congress-led UPA Government up to now on numerous points, at the moment are completely silent, and he cautioned that the social gathering would cease their movie shootings/screenings for retaining aloof.

“The Modi regime has hiked fuel prices with petrol going up to Rs 100, domestic cooking gas cylinders up to Rs800. Life has become miserable for the common masses. Even the farmers are protesting outside Delhi, demanding the revoking of the 3 new farm laws,” Patole mentioned.

“Compared with the rates during the UPA government, the prices of fuel are nearly double now in the 7 years of BJP rule At that time all these celebs spoke out against the government, but now they are scared of the BJP and keeping mum,” Patole mentioned.

He was talking at a bullock cart-cum-tractor rally in Bhandara to help the farmers agitation and the 4-hour-lengthy all-India rail-roko stir by farmers organisations.

“The UPA Government was a democratic and constitutional administration, that is why Bachchan and Kumar and many other celebs were raising their voice without fear against it. Today, when they are expected to speak out, they have become puppets of the BJP,” alleged Patole.

Now, the celebs not speak about or communicate out in opposition to inflation, spiralling gasoline costs, atrocities in opposition to farmers and different sections of society although folks from all around the world have tweeted and thrown their weight behind the farmers of India, he mentioned.

“These Indian celebs remained quiet even when the BJP and its IT Cell denounced the farmers protests, labelling them as terrorists, Khalistanis, Maoists, etc. But at the behest of the BJP and its IT Cell, they resorted to anti-farmer tweets. Have the celebs become mere ‘parrots’ of the IT Cell..?” Patole demanded.

Patole’s warning got here barely two days after State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh introduced {that a} preliminary Mumbai Police probe has revealed the involvement of the BJP IT Cell chief and 12 different influencers within the current controversy surrounding celeb tweets.

Earlier, Congress state Spokesperson Sachin Sawant mentioned that the Congress cost of strain being placed on celebs to tweet in favour of the federal government, now stands uncovered.

“After our demand to probe if the BJP had arm-twisted the celebs to speak up in favour of the government vis-a-vis the farmers protests, not a single celebrity has come forward to declare that it was his/her opinion,” Sawant identified.

Though BJP President J. P. Nadda, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar and state Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis tried to cowl up the BJP’s conspiracy with regard to the celebs tweets, the silence of these famend celebrities has spoken by itself, Sawant mentioned.
