Mumbai: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) filed an application to the Mumbai Police on Thursday and demanded a case be registered against film actor Kangana Ranaut for her alleged statements that India won freedom in 2014 and what it got in 1947 was “alms”.
The AAP’s national executive member Preeti Sharma Menon called the remarks as “seditious and inflammatory”.
Ranaut’s derogatory statement was strongly condemned by the AAP, which claimed that India’s independence of 1947 was “bheek” and not real independence, according to Menon’s tweet.
Submitted an application to @MumbaiPolice requesting action on Kangana Ranaut for her seditious and inflammatory statements on @TimesNow, under sections 504, 505 and 124A.
Hope to see some action @CPMumbaiPolice @DGPMaharashtra pic.twitter.com/9WxFXJFnEn

Earlier on Thursday, BJP parliamentarian Varun Gandhi came down heavily on Ranaut for her remarks, and termed it an anti-national act and said this must be called out as such.
