Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case takes a curious political turn with drugs’ angle dominating till date

The mysterious suicidal death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has taken an unambiguous political turn serving the vested political purposes of several parties involved in this trivial tragedy by way of playing their respective roles positioning their guns towards each other.

While the centrally ruled saffron party has on the request of SSR’s father n family members seeing a foul play in Sushant’s suicidal death has ordered the CBI, NCB n ED to launch in-depth investigations into this tragedy against the wishes of the Maharashtra’s Shiv Sena government comprised of Congress n NCP, today several important Bollywood actresses n actors has come in the fray, including rival political leaders accusing each other scoring browni points to allegedly seek political advantage with the investigations by CBI and NCB having zeroed their findings on arresting the main culprit Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, SSR’s manager Samuel Miranda, house boy Dipesh n good number of drug peddlers n dealers with investigations still going on to catch the big sharks of the drug cartel in which certain high profile Bollywood celebrities are also,allegedly reported to be involved as the drug buyers, consumers n even dealers.

Till date while the Narcotics Control Bureau seems to have been successfully established their strong foothold on allegedly targetting good number of drug dealers n peddlers with certain Bollywood celebrities in their list to be summoned in the near future for possible interrogations related to SSR’s suicidal death but as per the media reports the investigative agencies have not been able to establish the angle of SSR’s murder as was being speculated earlier with the Narcotics Control Bureau having its dominant say with one name after another related to Bolywood, fashion designing, modelling etc emerging, day after day.

The controversial Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut considered to be the staunch protagonist of the BJP having been provided the Y catagory high profile security , having left Mumbai two days ago after putting her complaint n point of view to the Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari, after demolition of her Pali Hill office has grabbed the headlines of the newspapers n television news channels, diverting the SSR case to a war between the centre and state, allegedly giving an impression of her being the saffron party’s sole chief representative to strongly n decisively confront n counter the Shiv Sena n the Maharashtra government seeking best of publicity.

The entire nation knows about her vociferous attack on the Shiv Sena leaders, its CM n Maharashtra government after she was attacked by the Shiv Sena leaders allegedly , publicly threatening n indignifying her for equating Maharashtra with Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

After the parliament monsoon session’s commencement, the SSR episode has now reached the Lok Sabha inviting the nation’s attention over the accusation of Samajwadi Party MP n renowned actress Jaya Bhaduri against the actor n BJP’s newly elected MP from Gorakhpur Ravi Kishan of blaming the entire Bollywood of being involved in drugs addiction n shabby narcotics deals etc.

Looking angry n irritated Jaya Bhaduri, who till date has not uttered a single statement on the Sushan Singh Rajput’s suicidal death since June 14, nor on her secretary ( Disha Salian’s) alleged suicide, slammed BJP’s Ravi Kishan for blaming the entire Bollywood for the involvement of a few in drugs’ shabby n illegal affair despite the fact that it’s the same Mumbai n Bollywood fraternity to which , he ( Ravi Kishan) himself belongs to. Jis Thalia mein Khate hain usee mein chedh Karte hein, said Rajya Sabha MP Jaya, referring to Ravi Kishan’s speech in Lok Sabha, yesterday, when he demanded strictest of the punishment n jail for those Bollywood actors who are involved in the drugs’ consumption n deals etc in Mumbai, while praising his party n government for ably n impartially investigating the SSR’s mysterious death case and arresting the drug peddlers n dealers n those involved in this shabby and illegal affair.

The Maharashtra Shiv Sena n its leaders quickly took the advantage of Jaya Bhaduri’s speech in Parliament criticizing the BJP MP n actor from Bollywood Ravi Kishan, getting a golden opportunity to target the saffron party.

Jaya Bhaduri hails from the Samajwadi party, obviously an anti BJP political party that suitably fits in the present Maharashtra government’s ideological framework being the anti BJP government.

From these entire developments one can easily come to the conclusion that the SSR death case has taken a pure political turn with Nitish Kumar’s govt n party n BJP taking advantage in Bihar in view of its would be state elections due shortly with an open political tussle already going on between the centrally ruled BJP n its allies n Maharashtra Shiv Sena government n its allies Congress n NCP.
