Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu states Aamir Khan's reaction on growing intolerance in India has pained him. "Unfortunately, Knowingly or Unknowingly whatever he has spoken has deeply hurt us. Few people are misguided by others and some others were heading towards a wrong path on their own. I can't name them but I can say one thing 'the atmosphere in India is better than many Nations'," he said.
Venkaiah Naidu claimed Indians are more tolerant and communal clashes have gradually decreased ever since NDA came to power. He says there is sharp fall in harassment cases & maoist incidents in the past 18 months.
The Minister found fault with Rahul Gandhi coming in support of Aamir Khan over intolerance issue. He alleges Congress is unable to digest the growth of Narendra Modi as Global Leader. He claimed NDA has focussed only on Development and there were hardly any new restrictions.
