Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani has taken a dig at Deepika Padukone, stating that the Bollywood actor cannot be denied the permission to stand with tukde tukde gang which calls for the destruction of India. Smriti Irani said “I think I would like to know what her political affiliations are. Anybody who has read the news knew where you (Deepika) are going to stand; (everyone) knew that you are going to stand with the people who wanted the destruction of India; (everyone) knew that you are standing with people who celebrate every time when a CRPF jawan is killed.” The minister went on to add “She knew she is standing with the people who have hit some girls in private parts with lathis, she stood next to them. I cannot deny she will stand with people who will hit girls in their private parts if they don't see eye to eye with them, ideologically.”
