New Delhi: Bollywood actor Anupam Kher hit out at Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Yogi Adityanath and said the duo should be jailed and thrown out of the party.
"'Hai kuch aise log party mein jo bakwaas karte hain. Chahe woh Sadhvi hai, aur koi Yogi hai, unko andar kar dena chahiye, unko daatna chahiye aur unko nikaal dena chahiye. (There are a few in the party who talk non-sense. Be it Sadhvi or Yogi, they should be jailed, scolded and thrown put of the party)," said Kher.
Speaking at an event, Kher said that only the rich and the famous are talking of intolerance in India.
"This is a no debate. The rich and the famous are talking of intolerance. If you ask a man on the street, they won't talk about intolerance. All they want is food two times a day. Those with champagne in a glass are only talking about it. Are you living in India or America," Kher said.
He said the "biggest" form of intolerance in the country was during the Emergency when all those people who spoke against the government were jailed.
Mocking Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, he said, "Congress is the most tolerant in India because they are tolerating a person whom they want to project as a prime minister of this country".
"If you can tolerate that person then you can tolerate anything in the world. This is ridiculous. Did you hear the word intolerance before the last eight months? This has been marketed to take revenge for the defeat in the last elections," Kher said, adding, corruption is "not being talked about" in the last two years while in the last ten years corruption was the most talked about topic.
