#MeToo: Sona Mohapatra wants invite to Kailash Kher withdrawn
Sona Mohapatra, who accused Kailash Kher of sexual harassment, has started a petition demanding Kher’s withdrawal as performer at a cultural event organised by the Delhi government. “I’m hopeful…Delhi government which is keenly aware of women’s safety as a critical issue will listen to #MeToo survivors,” Sona said. Kher is scheduled to perform at the event on December 16.
Singer Sona Mohapatra, who had accused Kailash Kher of inappropriate behaviour, has demanded the “Teri Deewani” singer’s withdrawal from Delhi government’s Mayur Utsav. She has started a change.org petition #WhyKailashKher, to garner support.
“I am shocked to learn that Kailash Kher has been asked to headline a performance at the Delhi Government’s Mayur Utsav that begins today,” she has penned in the petition. Sona has urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to cancel Kailash’s participation, thereby extending support to the #MeToo movement.
