Comedian Kapil Sharma questions PM Modi’s ‘acche din’, alleges he had to pay bribe

Comedian and actor Kapil Sharma on Friday morning hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘acche din’ slogan, after he alleged that he had to pay a bribe to a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) official.

Sharma, of ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ fame, took to twitter to vent his ire. Shooting off two tweets, the comedian alleged that despite paying Rs 15 crore in income tax for the last five years, he had to pay Rs 5 lakh as a bribe to a BMC official to set up his office.

Business Standard could not independently verify whether or not Sharma actually did pay the bribe.

Sharma did not name the BMC official either.

However, the extent of Sharma’s frustration was clear as he tagged the prime minister in both his tweets.

His second tweet asked the prime minister whether this was what he had meant when he had promised the people ‘acche din’ (good days) — which was the 2014 General Elections slogan of the Bharatiya Janata Party. (more)
