Latur: Maharashtra’s Rural Development and Water Conservation Minister Pankaja Munde was trolled on Twitter after her selfie in drought-hit Latur district in Maharashtra state went viral on various social media platforms.
Twitterattis accused Munde, who was monitoring the drought situation, of finding a photo opportunity in the drought-hit district.
Alliance partner Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayende slamed Pankaja Munde and said that, “The selfie could have been avoided as it was not a photo occasion.”
Reacting to this incident, NCP leader Majeed Memon said, “This kind of irresponsible behaviour on the part of leaders only betrays the confidence that is reposed in them to rule us.”
Congress party spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi also slammed Pankaja Munde and said that it was an example of insensitivity of the Maharashtra government which has not been able to address the problems of the farmers who are suffering.
Women rights activist Abha Singh also criticised Munde and said, “It was disaster tourism which shows the immaturity. The minister should have done something substantial.”
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Manoj Jha also hit out at Maharashtra government and accused them of not being able to comprehend the magnitude of the problem.
