Moments after Kangana Ranaut in a scathing tweet questioned Congress president Sonia Gandhi's "silence", former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis came out slamming BMC's inaction on Dawood Ibrahim. Fadnavis comments come after Kangana Ranaut called Late Bala Saheb Thackeray as her "favourite icon"
"Why was the whole issue given such importance. Kangana was not a national issue. You made it big. You [Govt] went and razed her office. Kangana Ranaut's issue was blown out of proportion by you (Shiv Sena). She is not a political leader. You don't go to demolish Dawood's home but you demolished her place," Devendra Fadnavis said.
However, earlier on Thursday, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation denied in the Bombay High Court that it undertook the demolition of `illegal' alterations at actor Kangana Ranaut's bungalow here with ulterior motives.

Kangana questions Sonia's silence
"You have grown up in the west and lived here in India. You may be aware of the struggles of women. History will judge your silence and indifference when your own Government is harassing women and ensuring a total mockery of law and order. I hope you will intervene (folded hands) @INCIndia," Kangana Ranaut tweeted.
This is for the first time that Kangana Ranaut has targeted Sonia Gandhi and mentioned her West origins.
