According to sources in potentially controversial remarks that could provoke a backlash, Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan has said the MeToo movement was started by "people with perverted minds" and wondered if it was fair to level accusations over incidents that happened years ago. Meanwhile the BJP leader made the comments in response to questions by reporters amid the raging MeToo storm which has demolished the carefully cultivated reputations of many distinguished personalities in the field of media and entertainment industry including celebrated journalist M J Akbar.



As per report Akbar, who edited many mainstream publications before joining politics, resigned as Union Minister of State for External Affairs on Wednesday after a host of his former women journalist colleagues accused him of sexual harassment. Accordingly if someone makes an allegation that such a thing happened when the incident happened we were playing together while in class 5 and would it be fair?”
