Babul slams Abhijeet’s ‘Cur’ Comment


Kolkata: Union minister Babul Supriyo on Wednesday came down heavily on Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya for his comments criticising people sleeping on roads, in the wake of superstar Salman Khan getting a five-year jail term for the 2002 hit-and-run case.

“I definitely don’t support his views since being the union minister of state for urban development, I know the context in which people sleep on the streets.

“I would like to clarify in person in what context he said this. This is not from a sane state of mind,” Supriyo, the singer-turned-minister of state for urban development, and for housing and urban poverty alleviation, told a TV channel.
