New Delhi, Jan 27, 2020: Bollywood Film Director Anurag Kashyap, who has been vocal about his political views on social media, slammed Union Minister Amit Shah and accused him of being ’cheap’.
"How timid our Home Minister is. Its own police, its own goons, its own army and security increases and invades unarmed protestors. Amit Shah has crossed the extent of cheapness and inferiority. History will spit on this animal," Kashyap tweeted.
The film director has taken an active part in the anti-Citizenship Act protest rallies and was against the Jawaharlal Nehru violence. He also came in support of his contemporary Deepika Padukone when the latter faced backlash for showing up at JNU in support of the students.
Earlier this month, Kashyap had also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government. He said the Citizenship Act is not going to be taken back as it will be a defeat for the BJP government.
“CAA/CAB is not going to go anywhere. It is impossible for them to take anything back because it will be a defeat for them. This government sees everything as a win or loss.”
He further explained in his tweet in Hindi why this will happen, “Their ego is such that everything will be burnt to ashes, But Modi can never be wrong. Why? Because illiterate people are like this,”
