The Home Minister has been under severe attack from BJP which had promised to rake up the issue in the Budget session beginning tomorrow.
"I will continue to perform my duties to the best of my ability to ensure that harmony is maintained in the social fabric of India," Shinde said.
Shinde's statement came on a day when BJP took to the streets in Delhi to protest against his remarks.
