The Times of India

MUMBAI: Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Friday said intolerance is on the rise and there is a "dialogue deficit" between the government and its people.

"There is significant intolerance in our society. Not only intolerance but fear and apathy has also risen in the society at large which is dividing it.

"This situation is prevailing because there is dialogue deficit between the government and some sections of the society, which should be resolved as soon as possible," Satyarthi said on the sidelines of an event held at Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) here.
