Govt taking steps to rein in ‘fringe’ elements: Rathore

In the backdrop of controversial utterances by BJP leaders in recent past, government on Friday said it is taking steps to restrain “fringe” elements who have been making “irresponsible” comments.

Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore said Prime Minister Narendra Modi cannot respond to every such comment as that would be giving too much importance to such people. Several journalists at an interaction with Rathore here raised questions related to a series of controversial remarks by several BJP leaders in recent past. Rathore, who is Minister of State (MoS) in Information and Broadcasting ministry, also condemned recent attacks on churches and added that there could be various motives, including “sabotage”, which should be investigated. “Government is taking steps to cause notices have been sent to these people. They have been asked to restrain themselves. The government is taking steps,” Rathore said while speaking at an interaction organised by the Indian Women Press Corps.
