Hema Malini says she is a ‘very sensitive person’


24 people, including an SP and an SHO, have been killed in Thursday’s massive clash between police and members of a sect who had encroached on government land here, even as tension prevailed in the area with police seizing a large cache of munition from the site and arresting 320 people

PTI reported that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had ordered a probe by the divisional commissioner of Mathura into the violence at Jawahar Bagh where nearly 3,000 people had illegally set up camp on an over 260-acre plot since last two years

Earlier on Friday, social media users condemned the perceived insensitivity of the local BJP MP, Hema Malini, after she posted tweets from her film shooting location while choosing to ignore the unprecedented law and order crisis affecting her constituents.

She said, “I am a very sensitive person.I am deeply pained on the Mathura incident but Law & Order of U.P is the core issue. Let’s not divert. I will definitely come but more than my presence in the area it’s important that there’s a presence of law and order there.”

She said that she was on her way to Mathura via Delhi.

The actor’s another tweet read, “I am constantly in touch with authorities/karyakartas in Mathura.I am on my way to Delhi and will reach Mathura at the earliest.”

The actor has been accused of insensitivity even in the past. The actor was condemned last year in June when her car killed a 4-year-old child in Rajasthan. The BJP MP came under severe criticism after she was taken to a posh private hospital for treatment while the family dead child was left helpless at a local government hospital.
