Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slams BJP-RSS over Udta Punjab controversy.
Attacking BJP over the on-going row over the film ‘Udta Punjab’ on Thursday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wondered whether the word Punjab would be also removed from the national anthem.
Kejriwal, whose party is looking to make inroads in the upcoming Punjab Assembly polls, claimed that by censoring the movie themed on drug abuse, the BJP-Akali Dal has “accepted defeat.”
“I was seeing this on social media that Jana-Gan-Mana-Adhinayaka Jaya He Bharata-Bhagya-Vidhata Punjab-Sindh…so will they remove word Punjab from everywhere. If words like Punjab, Ludhiana are being asked to remove, then filmmaking would come to a halt,” said the Delhi Chief Minister.
