One of India’s most beautiful actresses and a Member of Parliament from Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), is at the receiving end of Twitterati after her controversial statement on Mumbai’s inferno that killed 14 people in the commercial capital of the country.
Hema Malini suggested that such incidents are happening because of the huge number of population in big metro cities of India. She said that even a good police force like Mumbai Police can’t manage everything at once because of the huge number of people that live in the city.
“Such incidents are recurring because of the huge population in Mumbai. It’s not that the police aren’t doing their job. They do a great job. But the population is so much. And the city is spreading like anything. When Bombay ends, another city should begin. Continuation of Mumbai is another Mumbai. But the city keeps extending,” Hema Malini said.
She also offered her own solution. She suggested: “Some restrictions should be done on the population. Each city should have certain population…limit, after that they should not be allowed. Then let them go to another city…next city.”
Although, Hema Malini has a point, but Twitterati didn’t like her statement one bit and gave her a tough time on the micro blogging website. Check out the tweets here:

Is Hema Malini out of her mind? When asked about #KamalaMills tragedy, she had absolutely no sign of empathy on her face, simply blamed the growing population and asked people to move to other cities. This is not the first time, she has displayed such insensitivity.

We apologise that we chose her as an MP.

Hema Malini should restrict her opinions to drinking water quality. Saves her from making a fool of herself.

I never thought Hema Malini would be this insensitive! First it was her statement when accident happened in Rajasthan and now this!
Arghhh and these people are our representative. Maybe we deserve this only as we are the one who vote for these kind of people. https://t.co/wgeHZPNcsJ

When a M P does not know what to speak and how to speak then it better to observe silence. It is said "silence is gold".I am referring to a controversial statement of Hema Malini.
