In a major development in the #MeToo movement controversy, the BJP leader Subramanian Swamy reacted on the allegations against the Union Minister MJ Akbar by several women journalists. He said 'I support #MeToo, PM should speak on this.'

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy reacted on MJ Akbar and said "Allegations have been levelled against him, not by one but multiple women. I've already said that I support #MeToo movement. I don't think it's wrong if they're coming out after a long time...PM should speak on this."

Recently, the Women and Child Development Minister MAneka Gandhi said a four retired judges panel will hold a public hearing on #MeToo cases.

"The Ministry will be setting up a committee of senior judicial & legal persons as members to examine all issues emanating from the #MeTooIndia movement," Ms Gandhi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
