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.”

    Sharma is right . Let them be in jail for sometime. Case of attempted murder has been lodged . Bail will not be easy.Some political party is behind this ruckus, perhaps wanted to create some unrest. In these upscale luxury flats maids used to get pay and free lunch. Now , as usual women are the sufferers. Men can travel long distance for employment.Media is also very much responsible for wrong reporting .It is better to solve the issue amicably and one union is actively inciting these maids to boycott. These luxury flat owners are very rich and powerful and can pay higher amt to hire maids thru placement cells.Better not to fight.

      Why are Gav Rakshaks who lynch innocents being left free by the governments in BJP ruled states. Why are these killings not happening in Kerala where the rascals know, that they will be lynched in turn in case they resort to such gimmicks in the state.
