While actor Renuka Shahane slammed authorities for the Mumbai Kamala Mills fire, BJP MP Hema Malini had a different take on the issue. While speaking about the tragedy, Malini said that such incidents should not take place and it is clearly a case of casualness. She further stated that authorities usually put a lot of restrictions and it is surprising how these restaurants were allowed. However, when asked why such incidents were reoccurring in Mumbai, her response managed to trigger a backlash on social media. ANI posted the response of the politician on Twitter:

Population is so much, the city is spreading like anything. 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: Hema Malini,BJP MP”

Soon people started responding to the tweet and started trolling the actor for passing an insensitive statement about the issue. While some called her statement illogical, others asked whether she herself belonged to the city or not.

Atleast 14 people died and 54 others were injured in the Mumbai Kamala Mills fire in the early hours of Friday. After the incident, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis ordered an inquiry into the incident, and  five municipal officials were suspended.
