“Hema Malini Drinks Every Day, But Did She Commit Suicide?”: MLA’s Shocking Analogy
New Delhi: A highly unimaginable analogy by Maharashtra’s independent MLA Bacchu Kadu triggered a controversy.
While the sensitive issue of farmers’ suicide and plight is making, the law maker‘s comment on ‘Dream girl of Bollywood’ Hema Malini gave a shocking twist to the issue.
Many states in the country are grappling with sever farm crisis and farmer suicides are increasing day by day. In Maharashtra alone, 3,228 farmers committed suicide in 2015.
According to reports, dismissing that alcohol consumption was the reason for farmers’ suicides, he reportedly said, “Hema Malini drinks every day, but did she commit suicide?”
He made these comments while speaking at a programme in Nanded.
Saying that the real cause behind this is the lack of money, he quoted Professor Swaminathan who said that farmers’ produce is increasing but not their income.
The MLA apparently made such comments not only against Hema but also Gadkari. Saying that it is incorrect to perceive that farmers commit suicide due to the burden of huge expenditure on performing marriages, he argued that Gadkari spent four crore rupees on his son’s wedding, and should we now wait for him to commit suicide?
