Kapil took to twitter to vent out his frustration about having to pay bribes to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) of Rs 5 lakh to get his office made. What’s more is that he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself in the tweet.
Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis promised strict action on Friday after comedian-actor Kapil Sharma has complained to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter about alleged corruption in Mumbai’s civic body.
Kapil Sharma tweeted….

“Yeh hain aapke achhe din? @narendramodi,” he added.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) asked Sharma to reveal the name of the official who demanded a bribe. “We request Mr Sharma to share the name of the official and enable BMC to take strict action,” chief of the BMC’s vigilance department, Manohar Pawar, said.In his response to Sharma’s tweet later, Fadnavis said: “Kapil bhai please provide all information. We will not spare the culprit.”
Sharma has expressed support for Modi in the past and was one of those nominated for the promotion of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan campaign. “If we have Mr Modi on the show we will not talk about politics, party and all. I would love to know how a man from a small town has come this far and became the PM of our country. It’s an inspirational story. I will try and talk to him,” he had said in March this year.
The post by Sharma, who has more than six million followers on Twitter, was retweeted by around 8,000 people by 1.30pm. Sharma hosts the popular television comedy talk show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. He is also planning to start a film division soon, according to reports.He was the winner of ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’ in 2007 and later hosted the popular ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’.
