Mallika Sarabhai attacks PM for not paying tributes to her mother

Mallika Sarabhai, daughter of noted dancer late Mrinalini Sarabhai who passed away on Thursday, expressed resentment against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not paying tributes to her mother.

“Our prime minister, it behoves you to recognise her contribution, you have not, shame on you,” Mallika, a social activist and dancer herself, wrote in her post on social media.

She hit out at Modi for not paying respects to her mother, even as many across the world had paid their tributes on Mrinalini Sarabhai’s death. Mrinalini has been residing in Gujarat since 1942, when she married one of India's leading scientist Vikram Sarabhai.

Mallika posted her views on her social network page on Friday morning, wondering that Modi, who hails from Gujarat, has not bothered to condole Mrinalini Sarabhai’s death.

“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. That her death sees no word from you shows your mentality. However much you hate me, as our prime minister, it behoves you to recognise her contribution. You have not. Shame on you,” Mallika wrote.

Mallika Sarabhai has in the past attacked Modi as chief minister of Gujarat and his policies.
