Vijayendra Kumeria: “To say that only the rich should be allowed in Goa is a casual statement”

Vijayendra Kumeria’s television career is proof that the actor was special for the kind of projects he associates himself with, and most importantly, the character he says yes to. Whether Chotti Bahu, Tumbari Paakhi, Udaan, Naagin 4 or his ongoing show Aapki Nazron Ne Samjha (ANNS), the actor has made a name for himself in the industry. His fans love him for both the type of actor he is and his behavior in real life. The versatile actor loves to visit Goa because the vibe of the state is incredible. But what the Minister of Tourism recently said is something that, in his opinion, should not have been said at a time like this.

He says, “I read the tweet and it came across as a disrespectful and discriminatory statement. That kind of thinking process shouldn’t exist. In this century it is really bad to talk about rich and poor. What he is trying to say shows that the rich are all good and do nothing wrong and that all the poor are responsible for the wrong things and that is not the reality. It is very sad that people with such mindsets are in such positions. He said that he wanted people to respect the culture of the state, but that doesn’t mean that the poor disregard it in any way. “
