Kangana Ranaut asks for accommodation in CM’s suite at New Delhi’s Maharashtra Sadan; sparks political controversy: Reports

Newly elected BJP MP from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi, Kangana Ranaut, recently made headlines with an unusual request following her oath as a Member of Parliament. Currently in Delhi to attend the parliamentary session, the actress-turned-politician is staying at the Maharashtra Sadan. However, according to a report by News18 Marathi, Kangana did not settle for a simple room; instead, she requested the Chief Minister’s suite.

This request ignited a political row, with Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut taking to X (formerly Twitter) to sarcastically suggest that Kangana should be accommodated in a large suite at Rashtrapati Bhavan if she considered herself that important. In Marathi, he pointed out the standard protocol for newly elected MPs, explaining that they are temporarily accommodated in the state houses or sadans specific to the states they represent until permanent housing is arranged.

Raut elaborated that MPs from Bihar stay at Bihar Sadan, those from Uttar Pradesh at Uttar Pradesh Bhavan, and similarly, Maharashtra Sadan for Maharashtra MPs. He found it absurd that Kangana, elected from Himachal Pradesh, demanded the Chief Minister’s suite in Maharashtra Sadan, suggesting instead that she should be staying in Himachal Sadan. “But let it be, she is Kangana Ranaut,” he remarked.

According to IANS, Congress ex-minister Yashomati Thakur weighed in, suggesting that Kangana’s ignorance of parliamentary protocols might explain her unusual request. “Since actress Kangana Ranaut is a newly-elected MP, she may be ignorant about the protocols in such matters,” Thakur said dismissively.
