Hema Malini's husband veteran actor Dharmendra Deol is the latest to join the troll army against her over her attempt at sweeping in Parliament premises on Saturday as part of a cleanliness drive.
Dharmendra, 83, joined the Twitter bandwagon in his reply to a user who had asked him whether his wife had ever picked up a broom in her life.
"Yes, in films. She looked like a novice to me too," Dharmendra replied in Hindi, adding that he helped his mother in his childhood with work and called himself "very efficient" at sweeping with brooms.
Indeed Sir!!! Loved your impromptu yet most honest reply!!! Appreciate and respect you 😊👍🏼— Sidd (@sidd_sharma01) July 14, 2019
He ended his tweet by saying he "loves cleanliness" followed by a number of green leaves emoticons.
He also tweeted that Hema Malini, the BJP lawmaker from Mathura, sweeping at Parliament is a message to keep the country clean and requested everyone to "feel for New India" - which is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision.
Actor-politician Hema Malini was seen in a video on Saturday trying to sweep Parliament premises as a part of the "Swachh Bharat Abhiyan" along with BJP Minister Anurag Thakur. She appeared lost and was not too adept with the broom which prompted Twitter trolls to charge at her.
Ma’am please practice how to wield the 🧹 in private before your next photo op. This technique you’ve employed won’t contribute much to improving cleanliness in Mathura (or anywhere else for that matter). https://t.co/jFVLPJDLwy— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) July 13, 2019
