Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha today criticised union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde for his remarks against electronic media and demanded action against him.
Sinha expressed dismay that a Home Minister was not aware of the difference between electronic media and social media and said he himself had heard Shinde making comments against electronic media.
India had a vibrant media and it's right to criticise should not be questioned as it also involved freedom of expression.
"I believe some action should be taken against him," he told reporters here.
Shinde had reportedly said he would "crush" electronic media but had later clarified his comments were aimed at social media as it spread falsehood.
On Third Front's claim that they would work to ensure BJP and its Prime Ministerial candidate narendra Modi don't come to power, he said people will not accept negativism and criticism.
On RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's criticism of Modi, Sinha said the Bihar leader was known for his "political drama" and people, even his MLAs have rejected him, in an apparent reference to split in RJD.
