Mumbai, July 27: Salman Khan might not have thought that his one tweet on Yakub Memon would work as a boomerang on him. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members in Mumbai have been protesting against him since Sunday, July 26.

According to sources, Ashish Shelar, the Mumbai BJP president, on Monday met Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao. Shelar reportedly urged the governor to cancel Salman's bail.

If Salman's bail would be cancelled, then the Bollywood actor would have to go to jail. Earlier a session court found him guilty in connection with infamous 2002 hit-and-run case. However, Bombay High Court granted him bail.

The new trouble for the actor surfaced when he chose to make on Yakub Memon who is scheduled to be hanged on July 30. Memon is the convict of 1993 Bombay blasts case.

Supporting Yakub, the Bollywood actor on Saturday claimed that his elder brother Tiger Memon should be hanged and not Yakub. Tiger is one of the main conspirators of 1993 serial bomb blasts.
