The Accidental Prime Minister, starring Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh, is BJP’s propaganda against their party, Congress leaders said on Friday as the former PM evaded comment on the growing controversy over the film on him. Congress leaders said propaganda against the party would not work and the truth shall prevail. The trailer of the film, based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru who served as Singh’s media advisor from 2004 to 2008, was released in Mumbai on Thursday. The trailer shows Singh as a victim of the Congress’ internal politics ahead of the the 2014 general elections. 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 ‘TheAccidentalPrimeMinister’, based on an insider’s account, releasing on 11 January,” the BJP said on Thursday night.
1) Manmohan Singh was no #AccidentalPrimeMinister. He was chosen because he was the most acceptable pro-market, pro-reform face at a time when India Inc & Global Finance Capital feared a left-ward turn after 2004.— Aunindyo Chakravarty (@AunindyoC) December 28, 2018
If the film Industry wants to Make a Movie on Current Prime MinisterThen the name of this movie should be “Criminal Prime Minister”#AccidentalPrimeMinister — Lalu Prasad Yadav (@ModiLeDubega) December 28, 2018
The best response to propaganda bullshit like #AccidentalPrimeMinister is to not watch it. And dear @INCIndia please do not protest against screening/ release of the movie. Crappy film makers also have the right to freedom of expression. Ignore. Best treatment— Babumoshai (@Bong_in_Delhi) December 28, 2018
#AccidentalPrimeMinister was so much better than this Puducherry Ko Vannakam Prime Minister— Paresh (@hi_paresh) December 28, 2018
A string of movies filled with BJP & Hindutva Propaganda will be released 3 months before election– #AccidentalPrimeMinister – URI Surgical Strikes – Thackerey It’s a desperate attempt for votes but people are sensible enough to keep politics out of fictional entertainment — Dhruv Rathee (@dhruv_rathee) December 27, 2018
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 . Asked by journalists to comment on the film at the Congress’ foundation day function at the party headquarters on Friday, Singh walked away without saying anything. Congress leader and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said propaganda against the Congress and its leaders would not work and the truth shall prevail. His colleague, Congress leader PL Punia, accused the BJP of evading answers on its misgovernance after having failed on all fronts. 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, he said. National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also tweeted on the film, saying, “Can’t wait for when they make The Insensitive Prime Minister. So much worse than being the accidental one.” Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film stars Kher as Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna as Baru. (PTI)]]>
