Rajasthan's Health Minister says Aamir Khan is working for money, not issues

Rajkumar Sharma, Rajasthan's Minister for Health, has criticised Aamir Khan's TV show Satyamev Jayate. The minister has accused the actor of "sensationalising female foeticide cases" in the state. While one cannot deny that the government has swung into action after the first episode of SMJ, Sharma says, "There was an impression that the government took action only after Aamir's campaign, but I would like to highlight that we've already been working for the same. Budget announcements to check foeticide are there and several other steps are being taken. The government took up the issue much before Aamir Khan's programme."

He further says that Satyamev Jayate is not a campaign for social awareness. "Aamir himself has said that he is an entertainer and cannot work longer on one topic, that simply means what he is doing is for monetary gains. If he really wants to work on this issue, then I welcome him to come and work here on ground." [TOI]


  1. May be ministers can at least learn to do that what Aamir is doing " work for money ". And if he is doing it for monetary gains it could also be done by them after all the monetary gains they are getting on and under the table of Office .
