Patna, Nov 24 (IANS) After Congress and the Delhi chief minister, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Tuesday came out in support of Bollywood actor Aamir Khan who has created a furore by his remarks on increase in intolerance in the country.
“Aamir Khan is right that intolerance has increased in the country. Several artists, writers and others have announced return of their national awards in protest,” Tejaswi, the younger son of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad, told the media here.
Tejaswi said several other celebrities before Aamir Khan have publicly stated that intolerance has increased in the country.
“Many people will say the same thing on intolerance in the coming days as well,” he said.
“We will fight against increasing intolerance in the country,” the RJD leader said while criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party and other organisations over the issue.
“The central government must now wake up before it is too late to check and control intolerance,” the deputy chief minister added.
