Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant had a rather unique request for Prime Minister Narendra Modi: ban ceiling fans from homes.
Demanding Rs 5 crore in compensation for Pratyusha Banerjee’s family, Sawant on Tuesday said that banning ceiling fans from homes is more important than chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’.
“Banning ceiling fans is more important than chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ because many daughters and daughters-in-law are committing,” said Sawant.
Addressing a press conference in Mumbai, she urged people to use a table fan or an air conditioner instead of a ceiling fan.
“Whoever loves their daughter, I appeal to them to remove fans from their homes. Instead keep a table fan or an AC,” said Sawant.
She also claimed that Pratyusha Banerjee was murdered and her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh used to torture her.
“Rahul used to torture her, I used to tell him not to do this,” said Sawant, Indian media reports.
