Meet NITI Aayog member VK Saraswat, the Padma Shri awardee who claimed J&K only uses internet to watch ‘dirty films’

NITI Aayog member VK Saraswat, who created a controversy on Saturday by claiming that internet in Kashmir is only used to watch “dirty films,” has worn many hats — not only is he the chancellor of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), he is also a former chief of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and a Padma Shri recipient.

On Saturday, in a response to a question by a reporter, Saraswat had said, “What difference does it make if there is no internet in Kashmir? What do you watch on the internet there? What e-tailing [sic] is happening there? Besides watching dirty films, you do nothing there.”
