Social networking website Twitter had a lot to say about the wife of a BJP MLA Narendra Mehta ramming her newly-gifted saffron Lamborghini into an auto rickshaw within seconds of taking her car out for the first time. MLA’s car and #Lamborghini was trending on the website for a long time.
The tweets ranged from showing concern for the auto driver to poking fun at Mehta’s wife.
The Mira-Bhayander MLA Mehta’s birthday gift to his wife costs around Rs 5.5 crore. And Twitteratis questioned him on this too.
If MLA can spend money and buy Rs5.5 cr#Lamborghini for his wife, why should he get special privileges in the first place.— RiyaMukherjee (@riyalovezu) August 30, 2016
MLA gifts #Lamborghini to wife for her bday. If thatsthe kinda'legit money' to be made 'serving the people' I need to join politics today— Krishna Iyer(@thetantrik) August 31, 2016
Another tweet made fun of the BJP’s popular ‘acchhe din’ slogan.
After gifting the luxury car, the MLA shared pictures of his wife getting ready for her first ride on Facebook saying, “Happy Birthday To My Dearest Wife Suman”
The MLA played down the incident. “My wife has 18 years of experience and has driven Audi and other imported cars. The car just touched the front of the auto and it was not damaged. Road side mechanics cannot repair the car, which is currently parked in school premises,” he said.
