On Monday, BJP MP Ravi Kishan in Lok Sabha raised the issue of “drug addiction in the film industry” and said that it has affected Bollywood. The actor-politician asked the government to take strict action against those who are involved in drug trafficking. He said drugs come into India from China and Pakistan and there is a conspiracy by the neighbouring countries to destroy the youth of India. Kishan raised the issue during Zero Hour.

Well, these remarks of Ravi Kishan didn’t go down well with Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan. On Tuesday, on the second day of Monsoon Session in Parliament, Jaya said that the entire industry cannot be ‘tarnished’ because of some people.

As per a report in Times Now, Jaya said, “People in the Entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that the government tells such people not to use this kind of language.”

She added, “Just because there are some people, you can’t tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame.”

Jaya has given a Zero Hour notice to discuss the issue of an alleged “conspiracy to defame the film industry”. For the unversed, MPs can raise issues of importance in the Zero Hour subject to approval by the Speaker.
