Panaji / Goa : In a distasteful and derogatory manner, India’s Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar advised the chronic critics of the ruling government to remove clothes and dance naked to get more publicity.
Manohar Parrikar, who attended a Bharatiya Janata Party meeting in Sattari sub district in north Goa, located 40 km from Panaji gave this statement about the limits on criticism on Monday.
“I still remember in 1968 during the Watergate issue, he (an editor) had written a large editorial advising (Richard) Nixon. Now, how could an editorial written by him in Marathi reach Nixon? He is in America“. He said
He continued “Some people do not understand their limits. They keep blabbering. I have some good advice for them. Remove your clothes and dance naked (kapde kadha ani nagde nacha)”
“One will get even better publicity,” Parrikar said, while referring to an editor of a vernacular newspaper here” said Parrikar
Manohar Parrikar should realise, our Indian Prime minister too is a chronic critic of Gandhi family, he has gained publicity only after criticising the Gandhi’s and he still does.
Manohar Parrikar said “I give one advice to those who abuse to get publicity. There was a newspaper here. It is still there. I will not take its name. It had an editor.”
“He was an international level editor, he was brought here in his old age. His newspaper had a sale of 1,000…” he said while referring to an editor of a vernacular newspaper.
