The 31-seconds video shows Amruta Fadnavis sitting very closely at the railing of the ship while posing for a selfie with the phone. During this, she was also asked to return to the safety barricade by the security personnel but paying no heed to the warning Mrs Fadnavis continued attempting for a selfie while sitting there.
Reacting to the video, the people on social media has criticised Mrs Fadnavis for ignoring security warning and acting irresponsibly.
Amruta Fadnavis seems to be enjoying political tourism. She has absolutely no business in this inagauration. Selfie stunt kathron ke khiladi madhe karava tyanni. How is she on magzine cover page, sing song with Mr. Bacchan etc? Nepotism— anirudha (@coolanirocks) October 21, 2018
Dear @Dev_Fadnavis— Raman (@being_delhite) October 21, 2018
Such a shamefull act by ur wife Amruta Fadnavis on a day when Nation along with PM @narendramodi celebrates #PoliceCommemorationDay
She crosses the safety barricades paying no heed to the repeated warnings by Police
I never supported personal attacks on Amruta Fadnavis for her music videos or fashion show appearances, but this is plain stupidity. You are the spouse of a Chief Minister. The least you can do is not break rules with such brazenness. https://t.co/G6gPtkM3N5— Prominent Citizen Spaminder Bharti (@attomeybharti) October 21, 2018
