BJP MP slams Riteish for clicking photos near Shivaji statue

MUMBAI, July 6:
Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh today came under fire from BJP MP Sambhaji Chhatrapati for clicking photos near the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at the Raigad fort near Mumbai.
The BJP MP, a descendant of the Maratha king, said the act was condemnable.
“Some celebrities have clicked their photos while sitting on the plinth of the throne of (Shivaji) Maharaj with their back towards him. It is condemnable,” he tweeted.
There will be norms in place to curb such practices, he said.
Earlier today, the actor had tweeted that he visited Raigad fort, the capital of the erstwhile Maratha empire, this morning.
“Its an unimaginable high to feel the presence of one of the greatest warriors born in India Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Nothing is more invigorating than bowing down and seeking his blessings,” Riteish had said. (PTI)
