Really? Now, Rakhi Sawant wants ban on ceiling fans to curb suicides

Controversial starlet Rakhi Sawant wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ban ceiling fans in wake of Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide to 'save thousands of lives'

TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee's tragic death seems to becoming a platform for cheap publicity. After Dolly Bindra got into legal soup for leaking a photograph and video of the 'Balika Vadhu' actress' dead body, the latest to jump at the chance of using the tragic event is Rakhi Sawant. The controversial starlet has called for a ban on ceiling fans to curb suicides.

Pratyusha allegedly hung herself from her ceiling fan and this has given Rakhi Sawant, who is believed to have been close to the actress, the opportunity to make a bizarre demand.

Rakhi held a press conference in Mumbai outside Oshiwara Police Station on Tuesday, where she announced, "I want Prime Minster Narendra Modi to ban all ceiling fans and request people to use table fans and air-conditioning units as most people, who commit suicide, end up hanging themselves from fans. I will donate around 5000 table fans to those who cannot afford it."

Holding a white ceiling fan in hand for effect, she claimed that ceiling fans could indirectly be responsible for the deaths of thousands of young women across India. "If a father and mother love their daughter, they should get rid of ceiling fans," said Sawant.

"Use AC, use table fans," she added.

The tinsel town actress' solution for the poor of India -- "Hum log abhi ja rahe hain 5000 table fans gareebo me baatne (we are going right now to distribute 5000 table fans to the poor)."

When some journalists asked her if tall buildings should also be banned since actress Divya Bharti had committed suicide by jumping from one back in 1993, Sawant thunred, "Please don't make fun of me, be a little serious. If a minister or Smriti Irani ji had said the same, you guys would have clapped, just because she is the education minister. It is as if I have no right to speak."
