Meanwhile, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community is hoping that Tawadkar apologizes for his controversial statement. Tawadkar on Monday sparked a row by saying that government is contemplating setting up centres to make LGBT youth 'normal'. Tawadkar said that the LGBT youth will be trained and administered medicine in order to make them 'normal'. He, however, took a u-turn over the issue saying he was misunderstood and misquoted on the issue later. Jan 13, 2015
