Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday hit out at a journalist for asking whether Children's Day should be de-linked from Jawaharlal Nehru's birth anniversary, calling the query "very pervert".
Speaking at a government function here, organised to distribute laptops to Class XII students, Parrikar also said that computers should be used to analyse news and not to blindly follow news content.
"Someone asked me, do you think that Nehru should be de-linked from Children's Day? This is a very pervert question," he said.
"Why should it be done.
We celebrate Children's Day because he (Nehru) liked children. Let us observe it."
Children's Day is celebrated on November 14 to commemorate the birth anniversary of Nehru.
