Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam calls PM Modi ‘unpadh-gawaar’

Lashing out at the Congress, the Prime Minister said it is, unlike the BJP, a one family party. Expressing his dissatisfaction over the forcible screening of some film on Modi, Nirupam said our children shouldn't watch such films because they are unaware of the PM's educational qualification.

He had said, "The decision to screen the film forcibly is wrong". Children should be kept away from politics. What will school and college students gain by knowing about an "anpadh gawar" (illiterate-unsophisticated) person like Modi? He added that children and people do not know how many degrees the prime minister holds.

Accusing PM Modi of playing "dirty politics", Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had called him a "neech aadmi (low life)" and "chaiwala" (tea seller) in 2014. "The words I used aren't undignified", he said in his defence.

Similarly, in September 2017, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had posted an image on Twitter containing unparliamentary language to criticise PM Modi. "What are the forces which pressurise Delhi University not to release his degree, even when it's claimed he studied there?".

Reacting to Nirupam's remarks, Shaina NC tweeted, "Yet another abnoxious comment by a mentally deranged @sanjaynirupam". May be he forgets that @narendramodi is elected by 125 cr Indians who aren't "unpad or gavar".@INCIndia is devoid of ideology and relevant questions.

Nirupam called the prime minister "illiterate" and "uncultured" while attacking the BJP government in Maharashtra, while he was criticising its decision to screen a 32-minute film based on Modi's early life - named "Chalo Jeete Hai" - in the state's schools.

Anil Shirole, a BJP MP from Maharashtra tweeted, "PM is not a representative of one party, he is the Prime Minister of the Country and it's people".

The Zilla Parishad (ZP) schools in Maharashtra have been asked to screen a short film on Modi next week, a directive which has drawn criticism from Opposition.

"The Congress is now desperate to join hands with any party to survive".
