New Delhi: BJP MP and Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishan has been provided with the Y-plus category security by the Uttar Pradesh government following dangers to life for standing against the Bollywood-drug nexus in the parliament. He is the second Bollywood personality to be given Y+ security after Kangana Ranaut.
In a tweet, the actor offered thanks to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Ravi Kishan expressed gratitude toward the Chief Minister for giving security to his ‘family and the people of his constituency’ and said that his voice would continue to echo people’s thoughts.
“Respected Maharaj ji, with my security in mind the Y+ category protection you have activated for me, my family and the people of my Lok Sabha constituency has made us indebted to you and we thank you for it. My voice will continue to resonate in the House,” he tweeted.
However, Twitterati didn’t seem to settle well with this news and trolled the actor heavily. Trolls slammed the actor for receiving Y+ security whereas the Government of Uttar Pradesh fails to protect the girls of the state.
