Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam today said Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis should make it clear if MNS chief Raj Thackeray is running a “parallel government” in the state.

“(Actor) Shah Rukh Khan meets Raj seeking permission for release of his film “Raees”. Who is Raj Thackeray that film makers and artists are seeking his permission rather than that of the Censor board?…Is Raj Thackeray running a parallel government? Fadnavis should clarify,” Nirupam said.
“Ensuring smooth release of a film and maintenance of law and order is the job of the state government. Currently some people are indulging in extortion in the guise of patriotism.

“The state government is supporting such elements and Fadnavis is deliberately creating fear about Raj Thackeray in the minds of citizens,” the Congress leader said.

The earlier Congress-led government in Maharashtra had ensured a smooth release of Shah Rukh Khan’s film “My Name Is Khan” when Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt its screenings, Nirupam pointed out.

MNS, which is opposed to Pakistani artistes working in India today said that Shah Rukh assured party chief Raj Thackeray yesterday, that Pakistani actor Mahira Khan, who features in his upcoming “Raees”, will not promote the film in India.
