Deposit awards at my residence: BJP MP puts up hoarding

New Delhi: Hitting out at writers, scientists and artistes returning awards protesting “growing intolerance” in the country, a BJP MP today erected a hoarding asking them to deposit their awards at his residence.

“Deposit your awards here for vitiating atmosphere in the country,” said the hoarding BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel hoisted in the premise of his official residence at 10 Ashoka Road here.

The Delhi MP also tweeted a picture of the hoarding, saying, “We have tried to send out a message through the hoarding erected at my residence on the advice of friends.”

Goel launched the sarcastic attack on intellectuals even as Bollywood actor Anupam Kher today led a march to Rashtrapati Bhavan charging the “award-wapsi” campaign was to defame the country by projecting a “wrong” picture of the situation.
