Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar recently gave a stern advice to critics, who he claims blabber unncessarily, to take-off their clothes and dance naked if they want publicity.
While attending a Bharatiya Janata Party meeting in Sattari sub district in north Goa, he said, “Some people do not understand their limits. They keep blabbering. I have some good advice for them. Remove your clothes and dance naked (kapde kadha ani nagde nacha).One will get even better publicity.”
He made this statement while referring to an editor of a vernacular newspaper in the state.
“I still remember in 1968 during the Watergate issue, he (an editor) had written a large editorial advising (Richard) Nixon. Now, how could an editorial written by him in Marathi reach Nixon? He is in America,” he said.
Further, Parrikar said that he has one advice to those who abuse to get publicity. “There was a newspaper here. It is still there. I will not take its name. It had an editor. He was an international level editor, he was brought here in his old age. His newspaper had a sale of 1,000…” the former Goa Chief Minister said.
