Hindi movie actor Sushant Singh Rajput died on June 14 and it was alleged that his death was a suicide but after investigation, the case has taken a controversial turn, and now his death is being touted as a well planned murder.
The recent developments have seen fingers being pointed at Rhea Chakraborty, also a movie actor and his girlfriend, as she has been accused of plotting the murder of the late actor. Even though she has been arrested, it is not for his murder but for being a part of a drug supply chain. Another actor who is indirectly involved in the case is Kangana Ranaut who was one of the first few to accuse ‘Bollywood gand’ and film fraternity for plotting the murder. After a series of remarks and constant statements by Ranaut on backing given to Chakraborty by the Mumbai police and Maharashtra government, a politician from Shiv Sena, Sanjay Raut threatened her on coming back to Mumbai. This led to BMC giving her notice for illegal construction and despite the Supreme Court’s order of putting a stay on the demolition of structures till September 30, the local body decided to demolish her office. This raised a lot of eyebrows on political involvement in the case of Rajput’s murder.
To understand the whole scenario of the event, it is essential to understand the timing of the sequence of the events that are related to the case. Sushant Singh Rajput’s case has been getting extensive coverage from the Indian news channels and coincidentally the timing seems to be clashing with the fall of GDP of the country. Since 2003, the country’s GDP has never seen such contractions. But media denying to show this or talk about a much larger tissue and its continuous efforts in covering the late actor’s death probe is questionable. Some may say that the issue with the GDP and economic downfall was only highlighted in September but the case has been going on since June. Well, it is not entirely right. Even though firms have released their data for this quarter earlier this month, economists have predicted a steep downfall in the economy way before the coronavirus had hit the country. Other than the concerns of the economy, major issues such as Assam floods, China- India dispute, suicide spree of farmers in Maharashtra, Job loss, and many more are not covered by the television media.
The most shocking part of it all is the Bihar government releasing a poster on local newspapers saying that we will fight for the justice of Sushant Singh Rajput with a lotus symbol in the corner. Not only they are playing around the death of Sushant Singh Rajput but also making a mockery out of the emotions of people who are affected by his demise. They didn’t talk about the thousands of families that are affected by the monsoon floods, the homeless, and the hungry but they decided to name a road as a tribute to the late actor.
But it is not just the state government that is taking an advantage of the incident. The central government, Bharatiya Janata Party, too, is leaving no stone unturned to hype the incident even more. The center has given Y+ security to Ranaut after Sanjay Raut’s threat highlighting the hooligan approach of the Shiv Sena government. People in mass are protesting against the government now. A situation of unrest and dispute has left an opening for the BJP to once again enter Maharashtra. There will be a floor test again, there will be buying of MLA’s again and BJP will try to form a government again.
No one would have thought that the death of an actor can give rise to such political ambitions but the truth is political leaders in India have grown greedy for power and despite what the public is going through or what are emotions attached to a person, all they can think of is power. Everything is a part of a larger game plan that needs to be deducted and the process, the country might lose its spirit.
