Madhya Pradesh woman Minister Usha Thakur made a statement that has gone viral and started to attract condemnation after she reportedly said, taking selfies with her would cost Rs 100. The woman minister believes that the public wastes her time during selfies.
At an event in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh, 'Culture' and Tourism Minister Usha Thakur has stirred a controversy after she allegedly said that those who wish to take selfies with her need to pay Rs 100 in advance.
The reason for this is, the Minister reportedly believes that the selfie process is time-consuming and impacts government-related events and programs.
The Minister reportedly added that the collected amount will be deposited in the party's account for party-related work.
Her opinion comes following the delay and impact on her schedule as hundreds of supporters started to take selfies one after the other.
Thakur expressed that any person who wishes to click a selfie with her should first deposit Rs 100 into the account of the party's local Mandal segment.
Apart from this, taking the example of PM Modi who once said that 'instead of giving flower bouquets to guests at events, books should be given as it will enhance one's knowledge', the woman Minister also echoed similar sentiments and said flowers only should be offered to Lord Vishnu as Godesses Lakshmi resides in them.
