Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account has been suspended after she posted texts that violate the guidelines of the micro-blogging site.
In a series of tweets, the actress had made objectionable comments on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The actress was criticising Mamata Banerjee for the violence that took place in the state following the announcement of Assembly Elections results on Sunday (May 2).
Kangana demanded president rule in West Bengal after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won the recent assembly elections in the state. She also compared the politician to an unleashed monster. She said that no violence was reported from Assam and Puducherry where BJP won, but ‘hundreds of murders and #Bengalisburning’ after TMC won in Bengal.
The actress also commented on Jawahar Lal Nehru and Indira Gandhi in her tweets.
Kangana Ranaut also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “tame” Mamata Banerjee using his “Virat Roop” from “early 2000s” in Bengal and impose emergency.
She was reacting to a tweet by journalist-politician Swapan Dasgupta on the violence in Bengal after election results on Sunday.Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won 213 seats in the just concluded West Bengal Assembly Elections. The BJP garnered 77 seats in the 294-seat state assembly.
The tweet sparked outrage and calls for action against the actor.
The actor has also posted a rant on her Instagram account but has not yet said anything on her Twitter account being blocked.
In the tearful rant, she talks about “disturbing news, videos and photos from Bengal of people being murdered, gang-raped and their houses being burnt”. She also calls for President’s Rule.
Last year, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel had provoked fury with a tweet blaming the Tablighi Jamaat for Covid spread.
