Naidu hits out at Censor board members for attacking NDA govt

In a sharp attack on Censor Board members who quit the film certification body alleging government interference, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday if there was something wrong, they should blame themselves as they were in power.

He also slammed the Congress, saying it was the UPA Government that “politicised” the Central Board of Film Certification. “They were in power till on Saturday and if something was wrong in Censor Board, they should blame themselves,” he told reporters at the airport here. “This board was politicised by UPA Government and they (board members) cannot blame the present newly formed government”, the Urban Development Minister said. Naidu was responding to questions on the resignation of CBFC Chairperson Leela Samson and 12 other members protesting alleged government interference in the past couple of days amid the controversy surrounding clearance of film “MSG” featuring Dera Saccha Sauda chief.
