Paji, Dec 20: In a stern critique of a section of the Goan media, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said his advice to those who blabber needlessly was to take-off their clothes and dance ked to get publicity. Parrikar, who attended a Bharatiya Jata Party meeting in Sattari sub district in north Goa, located 40 km from Paji, was speaking on Monday vis-a-vis the limits of criticism.
“I still remember in 1968 during the Watergate issue, he (an editor) had written a large editorial advising (Richard) Nixon. Now, how could an editorial written by him in Marathi reach Nixon? He is in America.
“Some people do not understand their limits. They keep blabbering. I have some good advice for them. Remove your clothes and dance ked (kapde kadha ani gde cha).
“One will get even better publicity,” Parrikar said, while referring to an editor of a vercular newspaper here. “I give one advice to those who abuse to get publicity. There was a newspaper here. It is still there. I will not take its me. It had an editor.
“He was an intertiol level editor, he was brought here in his old age. His newspaper had a sale of 1,000...” the former Goa Chief Minister said. (IANS)
