Sachin, who has some stake in the sport facility, hasn’t come out with any sort of an explanation yet.
Following the Kamala Mills fire tragedy, social media has been abuzz with speculations about the accident. Sachin Tendulkar’s sports-based entertainment company, Smaaash Entertainment, was one such high-profile centre that found itself in the midst of the storm.
Sachin, who has some stake in the sport facility, hasn’t come out with any sort of an explanation yet. However, Smaaash, on its own behalf, shared through their social media handles a letter “highlighting” and clearing out some facts.
Shripal Morakhia, founder and chief imagination officer at Smaaash, said through the post, “I have worked with statutory authorities, shareholders and bankers and customers all my life. I always consider the statutory authorities as my guardians and always work hard to abide by the laws of the land.”
However, there is a post doing a rounds which wants to take Sachin and the team to task about their negligence. In an open letter that is being circulated, Sachin, with respect to his office in Rajya Sabha, has been requested to shed some light on the illegal constructions in his name in Kamala Mills.
“Your venture Smaaash in Kamala Mills has many illegal parts including the go karting track, which you have created in the parking lot (sic),” the post begins. “You, as a Rajya Sabha MP and Bharat Ratna recipient, have to openly explain through yourself that for money you will go to any extent? (sic)” goes the open letter.
Demanding an explanation, the post also says, “You have lost respect in our eyes! You can’t feign ignorance! We won’t stop till we hear an explanation from you! Posts to your twitter handle you have conveniently removed! What are you scared of?” The open letter also questioned the illegal constructions in the cricketer’s bungalow in Bandra and his responsibility as a citizen.
Shripal, in the same vein, had clarified that a part of the open area, which was covered by tensile fabric was demolished without any prior notice by the BMC. And that the “go karting track was also inspected and found as per the approved plan.”
We wonder if even after this, Sachin Tendulkar will come out with an explanation.
