Mumbai MLA Gifts Minor Son A Convertible Mercedes, Netizens Express Concern
After the lavish 500 crore wedding of former Karnataka minister Janardhan Reddy’s daughter, the MLA from Mumbai's West Ghatkopar, Ram Kadam, has decided to splurge on his adolescent son's birthday.
No, Kadam didn't like to gift his son new clothes or video games or such things the way other people do. So, on November 19, he gifted his minor son Aum R Kadam a swanky Mercedes Benz convertible.
The excited MLA then took to Twitter to tell this to the world: "#HappyBirthday to my dearest son @AumRKadam !!! This my loving gift for him !!! (sic)."

Soon afterwards, social media users started expressing their concern. Not for the MLA or his son, but for the people on the streets. While some questioned Kadam gifting his minor son a car, others advised him to discourage his son from driving and to hire a driver for him.

On a lighter note, a few social media users tried to remember the gifts they had received as kids.
