MNS had claimed on Friday that Kapil Sharma had said a MNS worker had asked for bribe to legalise his building, and challenged him to prove his allegations. “If he is unable to prove his allegations, then we won’t allow him to shoot in Mumbai till he apologises to us,” said MNS to ANI.

Popular stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma who had alleged on Friday that he was asked to pay Rs 5 lakh as bribe to a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) worker for his office premises, took to Twitter again later in the evening saying, “I just voiced my concern on the corruption I faced with certain individuals..Its No blame on any political party be it BJP, MNS or ShivSena.”

Though Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was quick to respond to Sharma’s complaint and assured him that strict action against the culprit, the tables seem to have turned against him as BMC has released documents which states that the office building Sharma was building was considered ‘illegal construction’ and that a notice was issued to him on July 16, 2016, regarding it.

The notice read: “… whereas I am satisfied that the you have unlawfully commenced/been unlawfully carrying on, erection of building/erection of work…”

Within no time, Sharma’s tweets took a political turn and the opposition parties found opportunity to take potshots at the Sena-led BMC on Twitter. Yuva Sena President Aaditya Thackeray requested Sharma to “share the names of the officials” and BJP MP Kirit Somaiya said, “the party will ensure that corruption is removed from the civic body.” However Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam said that it is “high time that the corrupt BJP-Sena regime should be dissolved.”

BMC claims that extensions without permissions were carried out by that stand-up-comedian turned actor Kapil Sharma who recently bought bungalow a was converting it into an office space, the construction for which was going on. The premises bought by Sharma is a ground-plus-one storey bunglow, in row house MHADA layout at Sardar Patel Nagar in Versova area.On July 16, 2016 BMC had sent a notice to Sharma and was expected to submit all documents supporting the construction or face action. However Sharma failed to submit the documents and never replied.

Demolition action were carried out by the ward on 4 August, 2016 and according to sources from the ward office, the demolition charges have to be borne by Sharma as BMC imposed charges. The calculations for the same is being worked out.Sources claim that Sharma’s premises also falls under Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms as the layout is close to the creek and has mangroves around. Hence the detailed inquiry will be carried out to check whether or not the CRZ norms are violated.
