The Kangana Ranaut-Uddhav Thackeray Twitter war has no end. On Monday, the outspoken actor criticised the Maharashtra government after at least 10 people were killed in a building collapse in Bhiwandi near Mumbai.

Ranaut reacted to a twitter user’s tweet sharing an article about the collapse of a three-storey building in Bhiwandi tagging the actor’s team. The tweet read: “Painful scenes! Happens when Maharashtra govt has only the time to dismantle @KanganaTeam’s office! #Maharashtra #Bhiwandi,” the user had tweeted.

“Meanwhile Maharashtra government k-k-k-k-kNgnaa ….. if they stop being obsessed with me they will know how the entire state is collapsing,” Ranaut responded.

At least 10 people were killed after a three-storey building collapsed in the Patel Compound area in Bhiwandi yesterday.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had recently demolished a part of Kangana’s office in Mumbai on September 10. She had moved the Bombay High Court against the demolition of what BMC termed as “illegal alterations” at her office. Recently, Kangana claimed a Rs 2 crore compensation from the BMC for the demolition, which the BMC said was “absurd”. The civic body had earlier filed an affidavit in the high court, saying Ranaut had made substantial alterations and additions to the property unlawfully and that her allegations against it were “baseless”.

Ranaut has been at loggerheads with Uddhav Thackeray and the Maharashtra government since she took the Mumbai Police to task for handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

Sena and its alliance have accused Kangana of carrying forward the BJP’s political agenda. Ranaut got security from the BJP-ruled Centre amid her spat with Sena leaders.
