For controversial “Jadu ki Jhappi” remarks used for UP chief minister Mayavati, Bollywood actor and SP leader Sanjay Dutt has finally apologized, saying Mayavati is just like his sister.
Answering the notice served on him by the district magistrate and district election officer Pinki Jowal, Sanjay apologised for the remarks and explained it was a mere dialogue from his Bollywood blockbuster Munnabhai series which were used in the rally to spread a message of love in society. The answer was sent by fax on Tuesday night.
He said that Mayavati is just like his sister and the dialogue was from a brother to a sister to strengthen the bonds.
“Even so, if the dialogue has hurt the sentiments of anyone I apologise for it,” Dutt said in his reply.
It should be mentioned that a show cause notice was served on him for his remarks against the BSP supremo during an April 16 election meeting. The district election officer had given him three days time to file his reply.
In the case, three FIRs have been registered against Dutt for his alleged remarks against Mayawati that he will “give ‘jaadu ki jhappi and pappi’ (magical hug and kiss) to the people of Pratapgarh, and given a chance he will do the same with the BSP supremo Mayawati”.
