If Rahul Gandhi is concerned about women's concerns, he should provide information: Anurag Thakur

Anurag Thakur, a union minister, said on Sunday that if Congressman Rahul Gandhi is really interested about women's concerns, he should provide facts.

Thakur's comments were made on the same day that Rahul Gandhi was questioned by Delhi Police at his home over his claim that "women are still being sexually abused" during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Rahul Gandhi may be attempting to conceal anything, Thakur asked reporters in Nagpur, Maharashtra. "Some individuals have developed the habit of saying anything to keep themselves in the spotlight. But, many are unaware of how bad the issue is. Rahulji need to provide the details if he is sincere about women's concerns. What is he concealing? ... Only he knows if it was a lie then or whether he is lying today "The Minister of Information and Broadcasting said. When asked about rising obscenity, the use of harsh language on OTT platforms, and content control, the minister said that these concerns have significantly grown lately.

"According to the present protocol, producers must resolve content objections before contacting their organisation. If a complaint is received by the government's I&B department, full compliance with the law is required "explained he. According to Thakur, the government is treating these complaints about obscenity on OTT platforms seriously since they have grown in number.

"We will give any adjustments serious consideration if we have to make them. Considering that freedom was granted for creativity rather than for profanity or bad language. Negative language and inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated in the name of innovation "Said he.

In response to a question on whether the Indian cricket team would visit Pakistan if the Asia Cup were to be hosted there, Thakur, who also holds the Sports portfolio, stated, "BCCI should make the first decision. When the time comes, the Indian government will decide".
