Mathura : Actor-turned politician Hema Malini who is currently BJP Member of Parliament (MP) from Mathura parliamentary constituency, was seen in ‘farm woman avatar’ who kickstarted her poll campaigning on Sunday by lending a helping hand to women working in a wheat field carrying bundles of freshly harvested crop. Hema Malini is seeking re-election from the seat.
On being asked by reporters about her future plans for people in her Lok Sabha constituency, the actor said, “People greeted me happily. They welcomed me because I have done a lot for people of Mathura. I am proud of what I did in Mathura.
She further added that her main focus will only be more development and that nobody has done anything more than like she and her party has done for the region’s development.
Sharing her experience, the BJP lawmaker took to Twitter on Sunday and said, “Began my Lok Sabha campaign today with the Govardhan Kshetra where I had the opportunity to interact with women working in the fields. A few photos for you of my first day of the campaign.”
There were few others who were quick to comment on Hema Malini’s ‘campaign drill in the fields’. One of the local expressed disappointment by claiming that Malini had done nothing productive for the development of the city and that her tall claims of development are all fake.
The local claimed, “Malini came to Mathura but directly went to her guest house to take rest despite knowing that people had been waiting for her since long in the scorching heat. She has not done anything for the constituency. How can we vote for her after seeing all this? There is a lack of proper drinking water in the area. Also, there is a lack of toilet facilities in the area despite being a holy place.”
On March 25, Hema Malini filed her nomination from Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura parliamentary constituency. She is the sitting Member of Parliamentary (MP) from the seat.
