Neha Dhupia has been in the news ever since she took to the social media to complain about the traffic woes and flooding situations all Mumbaikars have to face during the monsoon season.
The actor had taken out her frustrations at the terrible condition of the traffic on Twitter and had tweeted -

One rain n the city comes to a standstill. Good governance is not about selfies n makin us do yoga,it's making sure ur citizens r safe.
However Neha Dhupia had then faced a massive backlash by the supporters of the government of the day and the actress has now come out with a statement to clarify her stand on the issue and to state that it was not her intention to demean or personally attack anyone. Neha's statement reads -
The intention of my tweet was never to demean or personally attack anyone. It was the mere frustration of a helpless citizen of Mumbai. I've tried to take the high road on the outcome and ignore the people who've abused me and my family and nauseam online. But I felt intimidated as protestors stood outside my house. I am grateful to our police for protecting us and request people to see that my words were about a subject and not a person. My goal was never to hurt anyone's sentiments. I have wholeheartedly and consistently supported the government's movements like" Yoga Day "and "Swachh Bharat "as I will do in the future as well. I hope we can focus on the issues that matter and that my appeal to improve our civic amenities is taken in the right way.
In the recent past actress Shruti Seth had also come under fire on the social media when she had raised questions about the PM's initiative of 'Selfie with daughter'.
