Venkaiah-NaiduUnion Minister Venkaiah Naidu said today if there was something wrong, they should blame themselves as they were in power.

He also slammed the Congress, saying it was the UPA Government that “politicized” the Central Board of Film Certification.

He told reporters at the airport that “they were in power till yesterday and if something was wrong in Censor Board, they should blame themselves”.

The Urban Development Minister said “This board was politicized by UPA Government and they (board members) cannot blame the present newly formed government”.

Naidu answering to questions on the resignation of CBFC Chairperson Leela Samson and 12 other members protesting alleged government interference in the past couple of days amid the controversy surrounding clearance of film “Messenger of God” featuring Dera Saccha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh by the film tribunal.
