New Delhi: The Shiv Sena leader today took a jibe at the central government over Kangana Ranaut's new Y-plus security, said that the government would give protection even ti Dawood Ibrahim just to spite the Maharashtra government.
The Shiv Sena which heads Maharashtra's ruling coalition has been sparring with Kangana Ranaut over her comment comparing Mumbai to PoK and claiming that she felt "unsafe in the city".
"If the Maharashtra government speaks against Dawood (most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim) tomorrow, the central government will also give protection to Dawood. They just have to oppose the Maharashtra government," Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik.
"How much love the central government has for Maharashtra. The Women's Commission does not even see rapes in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar. They come to hear today that Kangana has been given Y Security. Even today she is probably on the Mumbai Police Do not trust list. Our police are constantly working, many have died due to the coronavirus... Still, they do not trust them," he charged
