3/3 Such comments ignore my extensive criticisms of BJP government, which are all a matter of record and which far outweigh positive points
2/3 Being receptive to specific statements or actions of BJP leaders does not remotely imply acceptance of the party's core Hindutva agenda
1/3 Astonished by charges I'm proBJP. My 30-year paper trail of published writings=my idea of India&my profound belief in India's pluralism.
