Fourteen people lost their lives when Kamala Mills compound in Mumbai’s Lower Parel area caught fire. The tragedy details are all over the newspapers sending chills down people’s spine. People were celebrating their birthdays, special occasions, and having fun with their friends but they never knew that it was the last time they were experiencing happiness. The incident has forced BMC to take strict steps against the illegal construction of pub and restaurants at Kamala Mills compound, Raghuvanshi Mills compound and Phoenix mall premises.
The incident left people shocked. Social media platforms got flooded with emotional messages sending condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the tragedy. While people were expressing sympathy for the families, BJP MP Hema Malini had something really insensitive and dumb to say.
The veteran actress blamed the population of Mumbai for the fire and said,
“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.”
Giving suggestion to control such prevent such incident in future, she said,
“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.”

People like Hema Malini migrated from Chennai and Dharmendra migrated from Punjab, then produced half dozen children, is main reason for population explosion in Mumbai

Yes, you are right. People from punjab (80% of bollywood) should be kicked out of Delhi and Mumbai.

Most people urbanize to find new Jobs. I government wants to ant-polulate some regions. They must focus on building jobs on rural areas. Limiting is not a solution!
She must be living in Fantasy world!

The most endearing feature of @BJP4India Members of Parliament, is the eagerness with which they display their stupidity in public… 😂
