BJP- Shiv Sena Fighting Because of Appointing Salman Khan as Brand Ambassador for BMC.
If we see from the beginning, Salman Khan name is synonym to controversy. He has landed in many controversies from the beginning, it may be Hit and Run Case or it may be Salman khan vs Shahrukh Khan. This time, two political parties are fighting over the Dabangg actor.
In December 2016, BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) appointed Salman Khan as the brand ambassador against open defecation in the mumbai city. Salman Khan also campaigned against the open defecation. This move didn’t go well with BJP Mumbai president Asish Shelar who is not satisfactory about the actor’s appointment. Following up next, its Shiv Sena alleging that BJP should first ask itself why PM Narendra Modi had participated in a kite-flying event with Salman Khan. As per a daily, recently Asish Shelar spoke about Salman Khan and stated, “How can some accused of killing a Chinkara be a brand ambassador of the BMC?” after this the Shiv Sena supporters started tweeting against Asish Shelar’s comments and started posting pictures of Salman Khan and Narendra Modi together.
Actually Salman Khan was officially appointed as brand ambassador to BMC in the presence of both AdityaThackeray and the municipal commissioner of BMC, Ajoy Mehta. However, almost a fortnight later Mr Shelar attacked the Sena, and stated, “I am not against the appointment of anyone but what amuses me is that those who have killed a penguin have appointed someone who has killed a blackbuck.”
