Mumbai : Kangana Ranaut and the Maharashtra government may have been witnessing a fierce verbal war for some time, but the Maharashtra government has come in support of Kangana. Actually, Maharashtra government on Thursday opposed a petition seeking permanent suspension of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account in the Bombay High Court. Government lawyer YP Yagnik said that the demands made by petitioner Ali Kashif Khan Deshmukh are unclear and the petition should be rejected.

Deshmukh, a lawyer of Mumbai, in his criminal writ petition said that to stop spreading hatred in the country through Twitter, Kangana Ranaut’s account should be directed to suspend or close the account permanently. The petitioner said that to prevent misuse of a platform like Twitter, it should also be directed to follow the country’s guidelines and laws.

He cited several controversial tweets made by Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel, through which she allegedly tried to incite hatred against communities and the state machinery. Arguing before the bench of Justice S. S. Shinde and Justice M. S. Karnik, Deshmukh said that he had written a letter in the past to police and Maharashtra officials seeking action against Ranaut and his sister.

Government lawyer Yagnik argued that the petition did not mention how the tweet referred to by the petitioner affected the public. He said, ‘This is a very vague petition. Twitter is an international organization. Nobody can make vague demands like this.’ Yagnik said that this argument is not correct and should be disposed of.
