Reportedly, the leader told media that 75% of MLAs drink, journalists drink. Hema Malini drinks heavily daily, did she commit suicide? Ladu who finds excessive alcoholism as the main reason behind farmers suicide said, “If drinking alcohol is the reason for farmer suicide then there are many actors who drink daily. Doesn’t Hema Malini drink too? Why hasn’t she committed suicide?”
While Hema Malini was not the only person who was attacked by the minister, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was also targetted by the minister for his comment that farmers killed themselves due to the burden of wedding costs, according to an Indian Express report.
