Lucknow: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said the central government was not giving any presentations or report card to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) as reported in some sections of the media.

Taking part in a conclave organised by a prominent media house, the minister said he was proud to have his roots in the RSS but denied that the ministers of the union government were reporting to the RSS.

“We are volunteers of the RSS and would always remain so, but to accuse us of acting on its guidance is misplaced. But yes, we do share experience and our views since the RSS pracharaks have their own wisdom and experience,” he said.

At the same conclave, HRD Minister Smriti Irani also denied reports that she made a presentation at the RSS headquarter recently and said the media should not feed the people with unconfirmed news.

She also took on the media for acting as “judge and jury” and said while she did not have a dislike for the media she “understood the business of media” and hence preferred to keep to her work.

Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani has given a shout-out to Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming film “Thappad” and said that it is not ok to hit a woman not even one slap.

Irani on Sunday took to Instagram, where she shared the trailer of the film, directed by Anubhav Sinha.

The politician wrote alongside the video: “How many have heard “aurat ko hi adjust karna padta hai…” How many think “ki maar pitai sirf gareeb auraton ke hi pati karte hai…” How many believe “ki educated aadmi kabhi haath nahi uthata…” How many tell their girls their daughter in laws “koi baat nahi beta aisa to humare saath bhi hua lekin dekho aaj kitne khush hai…”

“I might not support the political ideology of the director or may disagree with some actors on some issues but this is a story that I will definitely watch and hope people watch it with their families. It’s not ok to hit a woman… not even a slap… not even JUST one slap.”

“Thappad” takes a serious look at the issue of domestic violence, with particular focus on how violent behaviour is ground for divorce, irrespective of the number of times it happens. Simply put, even if it is just one slap, it counts as domestic violence.
