Veteran Bollywood actor and Padma Bhushan awardee Anupam Kher slammed the Congress party and the entire intolerance brigade while speaking at ‘The Telegraph National Debate’ on March 5.
Kher started by taking on Justice Asok Kumar Ganguly who spoke before him and had called the Supreme Court judgement in Afzal Guru case wrong. “I am shocked, ashamed and saddened by what you said being a judge you say that SC judgement was wrong,” Kher said to Justice Ganguly.
He also said that if Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi became even one-tenth of what Prime Minister Narendra Modi was, he would vote for him.
He also lashed out at Kanhaiya Kumar, who he said was being projected as a hero, for being a participant at the event in which anti-India slogans were raised.
Here are other important points that he made at the event:
– Lashing out at Congress leader Randeep Surjewala, who was also a participant in the debate, Kher said that his party was tolerating a person who they are trying to project as the Prime Ministerial candidate. “If you can tolerate that person, then you can tolerate anything in the world,” he said, referring to Rahul Gandhi.
– He added that the word intolerance was being marketed and used against PM Modi because there were no other concrete issue to talk about, including corruption.
– Responding to the criticism that he was speaking for BJP because his wife is a member of the majority government, he said that after being married to Kirron Kher for 30 years, he did not need to prove his loyalty to her by supporting her party.
-People like Yogi and Sadhvi should be jailed and thrown out of BJP
