Jaya Prada supports Ravi Kishan; SLAMS Jaya Bachchan saying, ‘She did not have the right to make such statements’

The past few days are turning out to be tumultuous for Bollywood. Jaya Bachchan who took offence at Ravi Kishan’s statements on the alleged drug menace in Bollywood said that there was a conspiracy to defame the industry. Jaya Bachchan gave a Zero Hour notice at the Rajya Sabha. She said, “Just because there are some people, you can’t tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain. People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that government tells such people not to use this kind of language.”

Now, Jaya Prada has reacted to what Jaya Bachchan said rather vociferously in the house. She told ANI, “I support Ravi Kishan’s statement as a matter of protecting the youth from drugs is important to me. We need to raise our voice against the use of drugs and must save our youth. I respect Jaya ji‘s sentiment in this regard but this is not a topic that should be politicised. She did not have the right to make such statements.”

She further said, “Why is Jaya ji taking this issue so personally? She should be speaking about saving the youth so that another case like Sushant’s does not take place. He has left us and the whole country wants justice for him.”

Ravi Kishan who is close to Amitabh Bachchan had told the Parliament on Monday, “A conspiracy is being hatched to destroy the country’s youth and our neighbouring countries are adding to it. The smuggling of drugs from Pakistan and China is being carried out every year. It is being brought via Punjab and Nepal. Drug addiction is in the film industry too. Several people have been apprehended. The NCB has been doing very good work. I urge the central government to take strict action against the culprits soon. Give them a befitting punishment and bring an end to this conspiracy by neighbouring countries.”
