Kapil Sharma took to Twitter this morning to send out a couple of angry tweets to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he has to pay bribes of up to ₹ 5 lakh to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on top of his annual income tax.
But now, in a twisted turn of events, the BMC has denied acceptance of any bribes, but alleging that Kapil Sharma is illegally constructing his office despite being sent a notice by the BMC.
A BMC official was quoted as saying that the second floor which Sharma is constructing on his office is violating norms of construction. He also ignored the notice sent by BMC asking him to cease construction and continues to construct illegally. The Mumbai Police have decided to summon Sharma and question him regarding his tweets and allegations against the BMC.
Earlier, Chief of BMC’s vigilance department, Manohar Pawar, held a press conference to address Kapil Sharma’s allegations, but he refused to comment on the stop-notice sent by the BMC to Sharma with regards to his illegal construction.
Pawar was quoted as saying,
As the issue pans out, only time will tell what the actual truth of the matter is.
