Hema Malini sparked outrage with her tweet alleging that the father of the little girl who died in the unfortunate accident involving her in Rajasthan was not following traffic rules.

While condoling the death of the girl on twitter, the BJP MP said the accident could have been averted had the father of the child followed rules.


This past Thursday, Hema Malini’s Mercedes crashed into a Maruti Alto in which Harsh (or Hanuman,according to some media reports) Khandelwal was travelling with his family killing two-year-old daughter Chinni (or Sonam, according to some media reports), and injuring other passengers of the Alto. Hema Malini was injured too.



While she was immediately rushed to Fortis Hospital in Jaipur, the Khandelwal family was brought to government-run Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital. The little girl’s father had earlier stated that had his daughter taken to Fortis along with the BJP parliamentarian, she could have survived.



His reaction to Hema Malini’s allegation was expectedly bitter:

“I feel very sad that Hemaji, an MP, has such a small ‘soch’ [thinking] that she tweeted that I was not following traffic rules. Big people can say anything from anywhere…If she has courage…she should come before me and say what she has to. I like to know from her one traffic rule that I violated…whether I was driving at very high speed, or whether I was on the wrong side, or I did not give an indicator..or I did not put seat belt.”


And this is how Twitterati reacted:
