Raj Babbar urges Vasundhara to show more feelings towards minorities

Written by: Staff

Jaipur, Mar 21 (UNI): Ousted Samajwadi Party leader Raj Babbar while condemning Rajasthan government's biased attitude towards minorities, urged Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to have more "feelings towards them being a woman." Speaking to newsperson here today, he said: ''There is some other real haqeeqat (facts) behind the book 'Haqeeqat.' ''How can the state government close down schools and orphanages run by Kota's Emmanuel Mission when Bishop Samuel Thomas and founder MA Thomas have nothing to do with the author and publication of book Haqeeqat?,'' he asked.

Criticising BJP government's policy towards the state's minorities, he said ''Vasundhara is a woman, daughter and mother and her name's meaning is Earth, she should at least have more feelings and compassion towards minorities in the state.'' Denying he is inclined to join any political party, Mr Babbar said he has always been a social activist and wants to remain so. ''I have always worked for minorities, Dalits and downtrodden people and have been associated with movements for long. I will continue to do so,'' he said.

Earlier in the day, while addressing the peace rally took out by various Christian institutes and activist groups, the actor-turned-politician said, ''I don't know the state Social Welfare minister Madan Dilawar, whose utterings and actions have disrupted the communal harmony of Rajasthan. But in our Bollywood films, the villain's name is mostly Dilawar.'' Coming out strongly against the Samajwadi Party, he said the party has become "a party of brokers" since the past three years. ''Brokers and goondas have become its leaders. Their only aim is to cheat and earn money,'' he said.

Reacting to Jaya Bachchan's expulsion from Rajya Sabha, he said, '' It is very sad and should not have happened.'' He was, however, quite supportive of Rahul Gandhi's participation in Uttar Pradesh's politics. ''The youth should come forward to cleanse politics and a healthy youthful presence would certainly help Indian politics, which is essentially caste politics.'' UNI RRT YA RS1755
