Actor Neha Dhupia , who was recently criticised for her post on Twitter where she tried to refer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Selfie with Daughter campaign by saying good governance goes beyond this,has clarified that  she did not want to attack anyone with her comment. Her tweet “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 (sic).” was criticised publicly, and the actor even had protesters standing outside her house.“The intention of my tweet was never to demean or personally attack anyone. It was 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 . But I felt intimidated as protesters stood outside my house. I am grateful to our police for protecting me, and request people to see that my words were about a subject and not a person,” she clarified to media in India.

Neha further added that she has always supported other campaigns by the PM, and hopes that people see the real intention of her tweet. “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 all can just focus on the issues that matter, and that my appeal to improve our civic amenities is taken in the right way,” she  said.
