New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) The government has not yet taken a decision on how to react to the recent judgement of the Delhi High Court to decriminalise homosexuality, Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said here Thursday.
The high court decision has been challenged in the Supreme Court, which has asked the government for its point of view.
