The Congress on Saturday asked the Maharashtra government to take back land from actor Hema Malini allotted to her for her dance academy.
"The government should take back the land. We will carry on with our protest unless the land is taken back," said a protestor.
Hema Malini's plans to start a dance academy on a plot of land in Mumbai's Andheri area have been described by an RTI activist as "land-grabbing".
The Maharashtra Government allotted a 2,000-square-metre plot in the heart of Mumbai to BJP member Hema Malini, a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and a Parliamentarian from Uttar Pradesh.
As per documents obtained by Right to Information (RTI) activist Anil Galgali, Hema Malini was allotted the plot worth crores of rupees for just Rs. 70,000. The land is worth at least Rs. 50 crore, according to some estimates.
