Mumbai congress Chief Sanjay Nirupam in Controversy, Calls PM illiterate

Mumbai Congress Chief Sanjay Nirupam triggered a controversy on
Wednesday, 12th September 2018 by calling Prime Minister
Narendra Modi ‘illiterate’ while criticizing the state government’s
decision to screen a short film on the PM’s life at schools in
Maharashtra. The BJP lashed out at Mumbai Congress Chief Sanjay Nirupam after
the comment and BJP Maharashtra unit spokesperson Shaina NC
called Nirupam ‘mentally deranged.’ “Yet another obnoxious
statement by a mentally deranged Sanjay Nirupam. Maybe, he
forgets that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is elected by 125 cr
Indians who aren’t ‘anpadh’or ‘gawaar’. Congress is short of Ideology
and relevant questions. Sure citizens will give a befitting reply in
2019.”
Anil Shirole, BJP MP from Maharashtra tweeted,” PM is not a
representative of one party, he is the Prime Minister of the whole
country and it’s people. By insulting our PM you have insulted and
disrespected the office, the country and the constitution drafted by
Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar ji.”
The incident happened after the Zila Parishads in Maharashtra have
been asked to screen a short film on PM Modi next week. The film
would be a 32 -minute long video depicting PM Modi’s early life in
the state’s school. The film is directed by Mangesh Hadawale and
presented by Anand L. Rai and Mahaveer Jain. A government official
said that the movie “Chalo Jeete hain” will be released by 18th
September and had a social message that would inspire students.
Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam also said that screening the
film forcibly is wrong and children should be kept away from politics.
He further added that students will learn nothing from an
uneducated and illiterate person like Modi. When asked about his
choice of words by reporters, Mumbai Congress Chief Sanjay

Nirupam defended himself and said that the ruling party need not
question every word and ‘in democracy PM is not God.’
While this is not the first time that Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay
Nirupam has made such derogatory remarks, Congress’ ally in the
state and the center under UPA backed up Nirupam and supported
his remarks saying that PM’s degrees are in fact a matter unknown.
