Days after an audio clip emerged of Union Culture and Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma’s meeting with Noida residents, in which he was heard siding with the residents and against the protesting labourers, the minister stood by his comments. Talking to The Indian Express, he said, “Jo bola, satya bola (whatever I said was true).”

In the clip, Sharma was heard telling residents of Mahagun Moderne that he will ensure the accused who pelted stones and stormed the society “never get bail”, while also asserting it was a case of “mob violence” against the family.  Talking to The Indian Express, the minister said, “No one has the right to throw stones at a family. If someone thinks a person has abducted his wife, he can go to the police and lodge a complaint.”
