Sanjay Nirupam dubs PM Modi as 'illiterate', BJP lashes out

Narendra Modi M. Venkaiah Naidu

Our children must be kept away from politics.

Later, asked by reporters about his choice of words, Mr Nirupam said the ruling party need not object to each and every word.

PM Modi, who was nominated the BJP's prime ministerial candidate this day in 2013, said only in the BJP can an ordinary party worker go on to become its leader. People speak of him while maintaining decorum.

"There is some film on Modi which is being forcibly screened". What will school and college students gain by knowing about an "anpadh gawar" (illiterate-unsophisticated) person like Modi? He claimed that the same words were used by Tulsidas in his rendition of the Ramayana.

The wind is blowing in the Bharatiya Janata Party's ( BJP) favour and opposition parties are having to hold on to each other to withstand its force, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday while encouraging party workers to follow the mantra of 'Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot' (My polling booth strongest) to ensure victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. "If children ask about educational qualification of the PM, what will you tell them?" People don't know his qualification.

Nirupam's comments evoked angry reactions from the BJP functionaries. Shaina NC, a party spokesperson, called Nirupam's comments "obnoxious" and said he was "mentally deranged". "Yet another abnoxious comment by a mentally deranged @sanjaynirupam. Sure citizens will give a befitting reply in 2019 (sic)".

The opposition is resorting to lies in its campaign but today people in the country are awake while opposition is not ready to come out of its slumber, the prime minister said. "@sanjaynirupam by insulting our PM you have insulted and disrespected the office, the country and the constitution drafted by Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar ji (sic)".

A report by PTI said that district schools in Maharashtra had been asked to screen the short film Chalo Jeete Hai on 18 September arguing that it had a "social message" and would inspire students.

The 32-minute film is directed by Mangesh Hadawale and presented by Aanand L Rai and Mahaveer Jain, is based on the early life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Just before the Gujarat Assembly elections past year, senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had called Modi a "neech" which eventually led to his suspension from the party.
