Kangana Ranaut landed in Mumbai this afternoon amid protests by Shiv Sena workers at the airport. Members of the Republican of India and the fringe Karni Sena were also present at the airport to offer their support to Kangana. Shiv Sena workers held posters and chanted slogans demanding that the actor go to Pakistan. This after Kangana had earlier compared Mumbai to PoK in her tweet and said she stood vindicated in a tweet this morning. Hours before Kangana’s Mumbai return, a team of BMC officials had demolished a part of the actor’s office, which was allegedly constructed without approval from the civic body. Kangana had compared it with the razing of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya and called the BMC officials Babar’s army. The Bombay High Court has stayed the demolition and asked the civic body to respond to the actor’s petition. Kangana had earlier dared the Maharashtra government to stop her from returning to Mumbai. Amid the tussle, Kangana has been provided Y-plus category security by the Central government. Watch the full video for all the details.

Even after interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that there was no ‘ill will’ against the 23 party leaders who had sought structural changes in the Congress, the ‘dissenters’ continue to be targeted. In the latest, the Lakhimpur Kheri unit of the Congress party has sought action against Jitin Prasada, one of the leaders who had signed the letter written to Sonia Gandhi. The district unit raised slogans against Prasada. Kapil Sibal, another signatory to the letter, hit back saying that while the Congress should be targeting the BJP, it was busy attacking its own leaders. This comes after Maharashtra Minister and Congress leader Sunil Kedar had asked the three leaders from the state who signed the letter to issue an apology. Threatening the leaders, Kedar had said that they may not be able to walk freely in the state again. 23 Congress leaders had written to Sonia Gandhi seeking structural changes in the party at all levels. The letter was reportedly discussed at the recent Congress Working Committee meeting but no action was taken. Watch the video for all the details.
