Why Sridevi given a state funeral when she dies after consuming alcohol: Raj Thackery

NEW DELHI:At a rally at Shivaji Park in central Mumbai, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray hasĀ  questioned the Mahrashtra government’s decision to accord state funeral to Bollywood actor Sridevi after her death last month.nn”Sridevi was a great actor, but what had she done for the country so that her body should have been wrapped in the tricolour?” he asked Maharashtra Chief MinisterĀ Devendra Fadnavis.nnMedia may have covered her funeral extensively at government’s behest to divert people’s attention from the Nirav Modi-Punjab National Bank scam, he said.nnThe government is trying to control media, judiciary and institutions like CBI, Thackeray said, alleging that media is under tremendous pressure from the government.nnIncidentally, Raj Thackeray had met Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar on Saturday ahead of today’s rally.nnHe, however, described the meeting at Mr Pawar’s residence in south Mumbai as a courtesy call.nnSource: Press Trust of India
