Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Manoj Tiwari on Saturday cleared the air by saying that he never called Bollywood actor Aamir Khan a ‘traitor’.
A few leading national dailies on Saturday reported that Tiwary has called ‘Aamir’ a traitor in his meet, 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
He also demanded an apology from Newspaper and should also mention the name of the source who gave them this ‘false news’.
Earlier, two leading national dailies reported that the BJP MP had called Aamir Khan a ‘traitor’ at a Parliamentary Standing Committee meeting on Friday.
In their reports, the dailies quoted a source saying that Tiwari said, “ Aamir Khan is a traitor, he should be thrown out.”
