Shinde needs to understand he is Home Minister of India: Rajnath.
Shinde had made the controversial remark on the final day of the Congress Party's Chintan Shivir in Jaipur. He had accused the BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of holding terror-training camps and promoting "Hindu terrorism" in the country.
The statement immediately invited condemnation from both the BJP and the RSS. They have demanded Shinde's immediate sacking from the Union Cabinet, and apologies from Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
"Shinde needs to understand that he is Home Minister of the country and cannot make such remarks," Singh said on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Shinde refused to comment on Thursday when asked about the BJP's nationwide protests against his remarks.
