NEW DELHI: BJP was left red-faced when Mathura MP Hema Malini today uploaded on Twitter her photographs during a movie shoot in Mumbai even as her party launched a scathing attack on the Uttar Pradesh government in the wake of the encroacher-police clash that left 24 people dead.

She, however, quickly deleted her posts and later condoled the death of an SP and SHO in the Mathura incident.

The actor also tweeted that she had just come back from Mathura and "will go there again if my presence is required".

"I just came back from Mathura and got the news of the violence that has taken place there in which policemen have lost their lives. So so upset by this news from a place which is so dear to me. Will go there again if my presence is required. My heart goes out to the bereaved," she said.

She had earlier tweeted a number of her photographs during a movie shoot and later deleted them following criticism on the social media.

BJP said she is "extremely sensitive" to the situation and will reach Mathura soon but insisted that the issue should not be used as a "diversion" as law and order is the state government's responsibility and not that of the local MP.

"As far as this issue of Hema Malini reaching Mathura is concerned, I am sure she will be reaching Mathura... Lets not divert the issue as to when Hema Malini will be reaching Mathura. The major issue is law and order is a state subject. The chief minister has to reach there and take stock of the law and order situation," party spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
