RTI Application Reveals BMC Spent ₹82 Lakh in Fighting Legal Case Against Kangana Ranaut

New details have revealed that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has spent ₹82 lakh on fighting its legal battles at the Bombay High Court following the demolition of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s office in Mumbai. The details were uncovered by activist Sharad Yadav who obtained it by the means of the Right to Information (RTI) Act. 

Yadav has said that another RTI application has been filed to uncover details about the total number of illegal building complaints received by the BMC. The activist was reportedly told that the civic body doesn’t possess enough manpower to offer this information. Meanwhile, BMC’s Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal declined to comment on the matter.

Ranaut’s office in the city was demolished by the BMC after reportedly finding “‘illegal structural violations” at the property. It’s worth noting here that the BMC demolished the complex only a day after issuing Ranaut a notice. 

With this backdrop, the actress decided to approach the court urging that the demolition be deemed illegal. The case went on till the first week of October following which the hearings were concluded while the court reserved its order.

“We all know that the demolition of the actor’s bungalow was politically motivated,” BJP corporator Abhijit Samant said while adding that the BMC doesn’t spend its resources on dealing with other illegal properties.

Kangana Ranaut has emerged as a vocal critic of the current Maharashtra Government and particularly, Shiv Sena, which many claim has led to the civic body seeking retribution against the actress.
