Mallika Sarabhai, daughter of Indian classical dancer Mrinalini Sarabhai, has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not delivering his condolences on her mother's death.

The veteran dancer breathed her last at her Ahmedabad home on Thursday morning at the age of 98.

Mallika, an actor, writer and also a social activist took to Facebook to express her anger over Modi's indifference at the demise of her 98-year-old mother.

"You hate my politics and I hate yours. That has nothing to do with what Mrinalini Sarabhai did to promote the culture of this country to the world over sixty years," she posted on her Facebook page.

Mallika caught up in a controversy in 2002, when she filed a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) in which she contended that the state administration and Modi were 'complicit' in the Gujarat riots.

She also filed her candidature against BJP's L.K. Advani for the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat in 2009.

"How ever much you hate me, as our prime minister it behove you to recognise her contribution. You have not. Shame on you," she wrote.
