The Maharashtra Congress on Thursday warned that it would stop shooting for the films of actors Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, who remain silent on public issues. Maharashtra Congress President Nana Patole said that the Bharatiya Janata Party government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has increased the prices of petrol-diesel-gas rapidly, while farmers have been protesting outside Delhi for the last three months.
He said that Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay and many other eminent people had raised their voices against the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government in the past but now they are completely silent. He warned that the shooting of his films will be stopped. He said that the price of petrol has gone beyond Rs 100 during the time of the Modi government.
The price of domestic gas has gone up to Rs 800, which has filled the lives of common people with problems. Farmers have been agitating on the border of Delhi for several days to abolish the three agricultural laws of the central government. Comparing fuel between the UPA government and the present government, he said that the price of fuel has almost doubled in the last seven years. During the UPA government, some prominent people had raised their voice against the government, but now all people have kept silent.
