Mallika Sarabhai lashes out at PM Modi

Social activist and dancer Mallika Sarabhai hits out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not expressing tribute to her mother Mrinalini Sarabhai, a Bharatnatyam exponent who passed away on Thursday. Condemning PM, she said that PM Modi has showed his "hate" mentality.

Mallika Sarabhai took to Facebook to ask why Modi, who hails from Gujarat, failed to condole the death of her 97-year-old mother.

"My dear prime minister. You hate my politics and I hate yours, that has nothing to do with what Mrinalini Sarabhai did to promote the culture of this country to the world over 60 years. She blazed a trailer for our culture in the world," Mallika Sarabhai said.

"She blazed a trailer for our culture in the world. That her death sees no word from you shows your mentality. How ever much you hate me, as our Prime Minister it behove you to recognise her contribution. You have not. Shame on you." she said in the post.

Padma awardee Mrinalini Sarabhai, who was an eminent Bharatnatyam dancer died in Ahmedabad yesterday due to age-related problems. She was 97.

Mrinalini Sarabhai and PM Modi tryst dates long back. Mallika Sarabhai continuously attacked the then Gujarat chief minister Modi for the 2002 communal riots in the state.
