Why an artist, any normal person can go anywhere, express their opinion. There is no objection to this, nobody has ever objected. In response to many questions about this, he said that I am also a BJP minister and also a spokesperson and I am saying this.

In response to another question, Javadekar said that if there is violence anywhere in any part of the country, then we condemn it. We have a mature democracy and all have the opportunity to express their views. So violence has no place in the country.
