BJP trying to shift Bollywood to Uttar Pradesh, says Congress leader Sachin Sawant

A day before Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s visit to Mumbai, the Congress leader on December 1 has alleged that it is Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) conspiracy to take Bollywood away to the northern state from Mumbai. He also attacked BJP for creating fear in the minds of people from Bollywood in these past few months by using the anti-drug agency, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

Maharashtra Congress’s general secretary and spokesperson Sachin Sawant accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi for shifting the International Finance Services Centre to Gujarat from Mumbai. Similarly, Yogi Adityanath is making an attempt to move Bollywood in Uttar Pradesh.

In a veiled attack to the UP CM, Sawant said that he should put efforts to make the environment in his state conducive for investment instead of conspiring the destabilising of other states.

Urging to the Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government to protect the Bollywood from the conspiracy, Sawant said that Adityanath has always tried to defame Maharashtra with the help of the Central government. This is a systematic attempt of reducing the importance of the financial capital, Mumbai, of the country.

Earlier, on October 15, Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray said that the attempts to malign and finish off the Hindi film industry or to shift it will not be tolerated. His statement came against the backdrop of probes by multiple agencies into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death and its media coverage which was seen by some as a deliberate campaign to target Bollywood.
