A group of youths led by National Students of India’s (NSUI) national secretary Shahnawaz Sheikh on Wednesday burnt the photographs of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and posters of his upcoming film Jai Ho to protest against the actor who joined
Chief Minister Narendra Modi in kite flying in Ahmedabad on Tuesday.
Though, NSUI state leaders — Adityarajsinh Gohil and Subhan Saiyed — distanced themselves from the protest saying NSUI was not involved at all, Sheikh had led the protest.
Sheikh could not be contacted despite several efforts. While responding to questions of some of the people present in kite-flying programme, Khan lauded Modi for development of the state and said that “the best man should be the prime minister of the country”. He also had lunch with Modi. He was in Ahmedabad for the promotion of his upcoming film Jai Ho.
