New Delhi: The Republic Party of India (RPI) President and Union Minister, Ramdas Athawale has stated in his tweet that the film producers should not cast actors who have been accused in drug cases by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). The politician tweeted in Marathi further stating that his political party will not allow for the screening of such films to take place which feature actors who are accused in drug cases. Republic Party of India (RPI) President and Union Minister, Ramdas Athawale also mentions that there must not be any kind of discrimination among the male and female actors. 

In the following tweet, he said that there should not be any discrimination between male and female actors and the agency should equally probe whoever's name comes up in the matter.

"A message is going that NCB is investigating only female artists on suspicion of consumption of drugs. If there are names of male actors, they should also be investigated. There should be no discrimination between men and women. But this question should also not be ignored that how come only female actors' names are coming. That's it," he tweeted.

The Union Minister, Ramdas Athawale makes it very clear in his tweet that the fact how only female actors are being named in the drugs probe cannot be easily ignored in any way. The Narcotics Control Bureau has quizzed actresses like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, and southern actress Rakul Preet Singh.
