    So who is Angoorlata Deka? She is a newly elected BJP MLA from Assam and was a popular Assamese actress and model.


    Assamese cine and mobile theatre artistes, cultural connoisseurs and civil society members have expressed disdain over indecent comments and trolls on social networking sites and online news portals against actress-turned-BJP MLA Angoorlata Deka.

    Angoorlata defeated former minister Gautam Bora by 46,343 votes in Batadroba constituency in Nagaon district.

    The trolling began soon after her victory with photos from her modelling days circulating on social media platforms along with unsavoury and sexist comments. One of the trolls said that “there would be 100% attendance at the new legislative session“ on account of her presence in the assembly .

    Reacting against the comments, popular Assamese actress Prastuti Parashar, who recently won an award at the 6th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival, called those trolling Angoorlata `a bunch of hypocrites and misogynists'.

    “What is the use of saying `Bharat Mata Ki Jai' when we are unable to respect our women? Angoorlata is an intelligent woman and it takes political talent to contest from such a tough constituency . She has set an example,“ said Parashar. Abhijit Bhattacharjya, a struggled a lot in her life and she will do good work as a politician,“ said Bhattacharjya.

    Zerifa Wahid, another popular Assamese film actress who started her career in Jahnu Barua's National Awardwinning film Bandhoon, said the Angoorlata episode is reminiscent of what Smriti Irani had to face after she joined politics. sought-after scriptwriter in the Assamese mobile theatre circuit, told TOI that Angoorlata, who acted in 15 of his plays, has always been a hardworking woman with great social values and ethics.

    “Those who have made indecent comments just seeing her photographs are not only mentally sick and depraved but ignorant as well.


    Instead of trolling her for her looks, why can't these idiots see her contributions and judge her by her work in the coming months as part of the government in Assam? Why slam her for her good looks?

    Are we the proverbial 'male chauvinist pigs'?

    We keep hearing about Sanskar, and this is what we get. The Twitter world is inundated with unfunny comments with poor grammar, spelling, and a lot of filth. How hard is it to resort to BC/MC over the internet? Those attacking this model are most likely going to go about giving lecture about modesty, while using immodest language. I suppose these people are real life losers when it comes to women.
