Sumitra Mahajan reacts to fake reports of her death: What was urgency in announcing without confirmation

'My niece refuted Tharoor on Twitter, but what was the urgency in announcing without confirmation?' ex-Speaker Sumitra Mahajan wondered


Former Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan in an official statement today wondered what the hurry was to report her death without confirmation.

Indian National Congress (INC) leader Shashi Tharoor had tweeted condolences but later deleted his tweet after Sumitra Mahajan’s niece and BJP leaders said that she was still alive and healthy.

While speaking to the media, she said, “How could news channels run a report on my so-called death without even cross-checking with the Indore administration? My niece refuted Tharoor on Twitter, but what was the urgency in announcing without confirmation?”

The Lok Sabha speaker’s son Mandar Mahajan put out a video clip, saying his mother was perfectly and urging people not to reply on false news being spread about her.

“My mother is perfectly fine. Please do not rely on false news being spread about her. Her COVID report is negative. I met her only in the evening and she is healthy,” Mandar said in the video.

BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya tweeted back to leader Shashi Tharoor, informing him that Sumitra Mahajan was perfectly alright.

“Thanks @kailashOnline. I have deleted my tweet. I wonder what motivates people to invent and spread such evil news that takes in people. My best wishes for Sumitra ji’s health and long life,” the leader Shashi Tharoor said in another tweet.

“Sumitra Mahajan was admitted to the Bombay hospital in Indore on 21 April after she had mild fever. She is now and does not have fever. She was also tested for Covid and her RT-PCR report has come negative,” Rajesh Aggarwal, a close aide of the Lok Sabha speaker said.

Sumitra Mahajan (78) was the Lok Sabha speaker from 2014 to 2019. She had earlier represented the Indore Lok Sabha constituency in Parliament for eight terms.
