Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut who is known for her controversial statements is not happy with the Centre's decision to repeal the three contentious farm laws which prime minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday. While the whole nation is celebrating the farmers' victory, Ranaut took to Instagram and expressed her disappointment.
Sharing a person's tweet about the repeal, Kangana on her Instagram page wrote, "Sad, shameful, absolutely unfair. If people on the streets have started to make laws and not the chosen government in the Parliament, then even this is a jihadi nation. Congratulations to all who wanted it like this."
In a second post, she shared a picture of late former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. "When the conscience of the nation is in deep sleep, lath (the cane) is the only solution and dictatorship is the only resolution… Happy birthday Madam Prime Minister," she wrote as Friday also marks the 104th birth anniversary of the former PM.
Meanwhile several other celebrities hailed the Centre's decision and took to their social media accounts to express their happiness.
