Ban sex education in schools, says Harsh Vardhan: BOO him!

June 27, 2014 16:15 IST

Even as the controversy over his recent statement that fidelity in marriage was better to prevent AIDS than use of condoms, a statement he insists has been misquoted, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has now waded into another one.
