Mumbai: Comedian-actor Kapil Sharma has complained to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about alleged corruption in Mumbai's civic body and wondered if these were the "achhe din" (good days) he had promised.
Kapil, on Friday, took to Twitter where he shared that he has been paying Rs 15 crore as income tax for the last five years but has been asked for a Rs 500,000 bribe by officials in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for grant of approval for constructing his office.
He tagged Modi's Twitter handle @narendramodi in the post.
"I am paying 15 crores income tax from last 5 years and still I have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office Narendra Modi," Kapil tweeted.
In another tweet, Kapil asked Modi if these are the "acche din" (better days) he had promised.
"Yeh hain aapke achhe din? Narendra Modi," he added.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis responded to Kapil's tweets and asked him to provide all information in this regard and promised that the culprits would not be spared.
"Kapilbhai please provide all information. Have directed MC, BMC to take strictest action. We will not spare the culprit. Kapil Sharma. Narendra Modi," Fadnavis tweeted.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has written to Mr Sharma asking for a formal complaint and urging him to name the officer who demanded bribe from him.
