BJP MP Manoj Tiwari called Aamir Khan a traitor at a Parliamentary Standing Committee meeting on Friday on the replacement of the actor with Amitabh Bachchan, as the face of the Incredible India campaign.
Tiwari said: “Aamir Khan is a traitor, he should be thrown out.”
His comment on Khan led to protests from other members at the meeting. Tiwari, also a popular Bhojpuri singer termed Khan as “deshdrohi”.
The BJP MP on Saturday asserted that he did not call Bollywood actor Aamir Khan a ‘traitor’ despite what had been published in a few national dailies, and added that efforts were being made to tarnish his image.
“Whatever I said in the standing committee is secret. And if the talks of the committee are coming out in public, then it is illegal. I have never used the word ‘traitor’ for Aamir Khan. I can never say a word like that for him in my entire life,” Tiwari told ANI.
“I would give a notice to the newspapers who have published this false news. I am a responsible citizen and I can never use a word like that. The newspapers are trying to tarnish my image by publishing false news,” he added.
