Ashok Chavan, said “Amitabh Bachhan is the brand ambassador of another state. We would like to promote our own state. Perhaps I would not have attended the function had I known he would be present,” adding, “I’ve heard that some people in the congress party are unhappy that Amitabh Bachchan was invited.”
Amitabh Bachhan was invited for inaugaration of sea link of Maharashtra. He was invited by Congress party as a chief guest. Big Bachhan inaugurated the extension at Bandra-Worli sea link. “The Rajiv Gandhi Sagari Setu or the Bandra-Worli Sea Link was opening up the remaining four tracks on this massive and symbolic structure that connects two regions of the suburb over the sea. I had been invited by the Minister in the Government to attend and so I went along,” Big B posted on his blog.
Several Congress leaders said they were not aware that Bachchan would be present at the function. The actor’s name was not there on the invitation card, they said.
However, Public Undertakings Minister Jaidutt Kshirsagar, who is also chairperson of the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation, justified the decision to invite Bachchan because he was an “icon”.
CM says, that he would not have attended the function if he was aware of the fact that Amitabh is invited.I think he should be reminded that Amitabh is not an active politician and as far as promoting tourism in Gujarat is concerned,it is not a crime.
What these politicians are trying to do?
Do they have mind or not?
Why they make small thing into a big issue?
