Manoj Tiwari says Kapil Sharma may have dragged Modi’s name at Kejriwal’s behest


BJP MP Manoj Tiwari on Monday implied that Kapil Sharma had tweeted targetting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s achche din at the behest of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Tiwari told ANI, “jinkay khne pr ye baat keh rahe hain, voh ek crore kay chai-samosa kha lete hain (Person whose behest Kapil has tweeted this has spent Rs 1 crore on just tea and samosas.)”

The singer-turned-politician also said that it was wrong for Kapil to drag Modi’s name in his complaint.

He told India Today, “Kapil shouldn’t have dragged PM Modi into this. He should have filed a written complaint. He pays Rs 15 crore income tax, that means he earns Rs 50-60 crore. Kapil ke achche din hain. He should trust PM Modi. India is going through a lot of problems and he is seeing only his problem.”

In a significant development, Sharma on Friday had attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his claims for delivering achche din promise.

Taking to Twitter, Sharma, said that he was being asked to pay Rs 5 lakh as bribe in order to set up his new office.

He wrote, “I am paying 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office @narendramodi. Yeh hain aapke achhe din ? ”

The post of Sharma, who has over 6.22 million followers on twitter, was retweeted by many.

Taking cognisance of the complaint, Fadnavis requested the TV host to provide them with necessary information to punish the culprit.

“Kapilbhai pls provide all info. Have directed MC,BMC to take strictest action. We will not spare the culprit,” the CM said in a tweet.

The BMC also asked Sharma to reveal the name of the officer who allegedly demanded the bribe.

“I have requested Kapil Sharmaji to reveal the name of the officer who demanded bribe so that we can initiate inquiry and appropriate action against him or her. We hope that he will cooperate with us,” Manohar Pawar, chief engineer of vigilance department in BMC, told PTI.
