Mumbai: The Congress on Thursday warned that it would stop the shootings or filming of and “as they have failed to speak up” for burning public causes.

In a strong statement, state Congress President said that the Bharatiya Janata Party government-led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hiked petrol-diesel-gas prices exorbitantly, while farmers have been protesting outside Delhi for the past nearly three months.
However, in the midst of these grave crises, many celebs including Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay, who had raised their voices against the Congress-led UPA Government in the past on various issues, are now absolutely silent, and he cautioned that the party would stop their shootings for keeping aloof.
“The Modi regime has hiked fuel prices with petrol going up to Rs.100, domestic cooking gas cylinders upto Rs.800. Life has become miserable for the common masses. Even the farmers are protesting outside Delhi, demanding the revoking the 3 new farm laws,” Patole said.
“Compared with the rates during the UPA government, the prices of fuel are nearly double now in the 7 years of rule. At that time all these celebs spoke out against the government, but now they are scared of the BJP and keeping mum,” Patole said.
