New Delhi,28/12/18:It refers to the film Accidental-Prime-Minister released on 28.12.2018. The film based on the book by Sanjay Baru, media-advisor to the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has caused waves of embarrassment in Congress party for obvious reasons confusing everyone in the party whether to demand ban on the film or not. Any such demand to ban would have been considered as attack on freedom of expression.
Damage-control exercise of Congress President by giving special honour of symbolic cake-cutting to Dr Manmohan Singh on occasion of Foundation-Day of oldest political party with Congress President seen helping him, and confusing talks by party-cadre for demand to ban of the film bounced back giving extra publicity to the film which is said to have projected Dr Manmohansingh having acted on directions of the then Congress President during his tenure as Prime Minister. Ignoring release of film would have been beneficial for Congress.
It is noteworthy that famous Hindi film Aandhi was banned in Congress regime at the centre because of common knowledge that the film was based on real life of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
