Actor-Turned-Politician Kirron Kher Says She Is ‘Donating’ From MPLAD Fund, Gets Trolled

Bhubaneswar: Veteran actress and BJP MP Kirron Kher was heavily trolled on social media after her Tuesday evening post, announcing that she had ‘donated’ a sum of Rs 1 crore from Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) for the purchase of ventilators for COVID-19 patients by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh.

The Twitterati tore her apart for using the word “donate” while allocating funds from MPLADS. A few reminded her about the Union Cabinet’s April 2020 decision to suspend MPLADS for 2020-21 and 2021-22 and utilise the amount to manage the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

Check out the reactions here:

Kirron has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, and currently undergoing treatment in Mumbai.

“Kirron is improving. She is better but the medicines for multiple myeloma have many side effects. She is in good spirits and hopefully, she will come out of it. If your prayers are with her, everything will be fine,” actor Anupam Kher had told fans during an Instagram live on Tuesday.
