New Delhi/Solapur: Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Tuesday clarified his remarks on crushing the elements of media for spreading false propaganda against the Congress.
“My comments were on social media. It was with regards to the issue related to the Northeast students who were being targeted in Hyderabad and Karnataka. It was not on journalists,” Shinde.
Shinde on Monday said: “Certain elements in the media orchestrate ‘nasty designs’. Since I’m also in charge of the intelligence wing, I know where this is coming from.”
“We have been working silently to place checks on them, but there was a campaign from them over the past four months. We are now going to crush these elements in the electronic media spreading false propaganda,” Shinde said at a Youth Congress event in Maharashtra’s Solapur.
