Controversy Over Congress Leader’s “Illiterate” Remark on PM Modi - TNBCLive

Mumbai: While criticising the state a short film on government’s decision to screen the Prime Minister’s life at schools in Maharashtra Congress Chief Sanjay Nirupam, called Prime Minister Narendra Modi “ illiterate”. Hence, the instant reaction comes from Saina NC One of the BJP leader calling Mr. Nirupam “mentally deranged”.

After that Congress leader told reporters that “ the decision to screen the film forcibly is wrong. Children should be kept away from politics. What will students learn from watching a film on an uneducated and illiterate person like (prime minister) Modi”. He also added that “ Children and people do not know how many degrees the prime minister holds”.

While discussing the word which he used Mr. Nirupam said that the ruling party need not object to each and every word. He described his points by saying “ In a democracy, the prime minister is not god. People speak of him while maintaining decorum. The words I used aren’s undignified”.

With a reaction, Shaina NC tweeted “ Yet another obnoxious comment by a mentally deranged@ sanjaynirupam. Maybe he forgets that @narendramodi is elected by cr Indians who aren’t “ unpad or gavar”. @INCIndia is devoid of ideology and relevant questions. Sure citizens will give a befitting reply in 2019 (sic).”
