New Delhi: As soon as the trailer of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' was released, the Congress leaders across India started protesting against the film and said that they will not let the film release.
The movie is BJP's propaganda against their party, Congress leaders said on Friday as the former prime minister evaded comment on the growing controversy over the film on him.
Congress leader said that propaganda against the party would not work and the truth shall prevail.
What BJP said:
Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready? Watch the official trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister', based on an insider's account, releasing on 11 January.
Responding to the BJP, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said on Twitter that such fake propaganda by the party would not stop it from asking the Modi government questions on "rural distress, rampant unemployment, demonetisation disaster, flawed GST, failed Modinomics, all pervading corruption.
What Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot said:
- Propaganda against the Congress and its leaders would not work and the truth shall prevail.
What P L Punia said:
- This is the handiwork of the BJP. They know that time has come to give answers after completion of five years and they are now trying to divert attention by raising such issues and evade answering to the public after its government failed on all fronts.
What National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said:
- Can't wait for when they make The Insensitive Prime Minister. So much worse than being the accidental one.
