Union Minister’s reaction on actor Siddharth’s post on Saina Nehwal
Law Minister Kiren Rijiju has criticised a sexist tweet made by actor Siddharth on a Twitter post by badminton player Saina Nehwal.
The badminton star took to Twitter to raise her concerns about PM’s security breach in Punjab, where his convoy had to wait on a flyover for about 20 minutes because of a protest on his route. To this, Siddharth replied “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Folded hands. Shame on you Rihanna.”
Siddharth’s reply attracted a lot of criticism. Union Minister, Kiran Rijiju also expressed his condemn and wrote : “ India is proud of Saina Nehwal for her outstanding contributions in making India a sporting powerhouse. She is a steadfast patriot besides being an Olympic medallist. Making a cheap comment on such an icon personality depicts a person’s ignoble mentality,”.
