The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) on Saturday issued a notice to actress Kangana Ranaut for addressing a Punjab elderly woman as a daily-wager. She had compared the octogenarian woman, who belongs to a farmer family, with Bilkis daadi of Shaheen Bagh protest. The notice asked the actress to apologise over her series of tweets otherwise there would be a legal action against her.
The elderly woman about which Kangana was talking about is a 73-year-old Mohinder Kaur from Bahadurgarh Jandian village in Bathinda. She has been honoured on International Women’s Day by the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. She was presented a cash prize of Rs 50,000 and a memento for her active participation in the ongoing farm agitation. Also Read: Indian Government Reprimanded UK MP's Debate on Farmers Protests
