Taking cognizance of her status as a popular television star and celebrity, her remarks should have been more responsible and sensitive.
Nevertheless, it is essential that an example should be set by arresting Dutta for her casteist remark so that the citizens and celebrities take a cue and refrain from insulting or demeaning SC & ST community with similar remarks.”
