It reminds us of the Emergency. This attack on free press must be and WILL BE OPPOSED.

Kangana in the video could be heard saying, “I want to ask Maharashtra government that today you went to Arnab Goswami’s home, pulled his hair and assaulted him. How many homes will you demolish and how many necks will you strangle? How many hair will you pull? Sonia Sena, how many voices will you stop? These voices will only increase. They have been many who have been hanged for free speech.”
