Bollywood actress turned politician Hema Malini is the member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP. She has been doing quite well in her political career since many years. However, the actress has landed into controversy because of her recent statement. Hema Malini said she can become the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh at any minute. But the Mathura lawmaker said that she was not willing to take the responsibility.
Hema Ji was in Rajasthan’s Banswara to perform at a religious function. While interacting with the reporters, she was quoted saying, “If I want to, I can become that (chief minister) in a minute.”
But in seconds she went on to clarify saying, “I don't like to be tied up. My freedom of movement will end.”
Well, little did the former actress know that her statement will fall in the bad light and in no time people started mocking her on the social media.
Social media users are slamming her for giving such statement.
A Twitter user named Kasturi Shanker who has many followers on the social networking site said, “I think she meant FOR a minute. Not known for getting her prepositions (or any other position for that matter) right.”
Supreme Court lawyer Kamna Singh wrote, “Bjp MP sacrifices her CM post because she is not sure about her right to freedom of movement under her own party. But CM in a minut? Seriously? Ahh I like her confidence;) What an impressive set of insult of her own party. Kiddos to Hema Malini ji.”
There were many other Twitter users who made fun of the actress.
Simmi Ahuja of the Congress wrote, “Well she contested from UP and saying “can become CM In a Minute” in Rajasthan #Kiski kursi खतरे में है.”
The 69-year-old actress stepped in the world of politics and joined the BJP formally in the year 2004 even though she was elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2003 by the then Atal Bihari Vajpayee government. In 2014, she was elected from Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura Lok Sabha constituency.
