Attending a music launch event in Mumbai barely few hours after the serial blasts at the venue of Narendra Modi’s rally in Patna, which killed six people and injured 90 other, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde has come under sharp criticism.
BJP leader Nitin Gadkari, speaking at the Idea Exchange programme of the Indian Express, slammed the Home Minister as he said “When Patna blasts were taking place, Home Minister was attending a movie event with Kangna Ranaut. This is irresponsible.”
As soon as the channels flashed reports of Shinde attending the Bollywood event despite bomb blasts in Patna, the Home Minister came under fire from the political parties.
On the micro-blogging site Twitter, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Chouhan also took a jibe at Shinde. “Home Minister launching music, when there were blasts in Patna. Now it’s time for them to hear the music,” Chouhan tweeted.
