Mumbai sources reported that triggering a controversy, Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam on Wednesday called Narendra Modi as "illiterate", while criticizing the state government's decision to screen a short film on the prime minister's life at schools in Maharashtra. Meanwhile his comment drew sharp reaction from BJP leaders with the party's Maharashtra unit spokesperson Shaina NC calling Nirupam "mentally deranged."



The Congress leader told a news channel "The decision to screen the film forcibly is wrong. Children should be kept away from politics. What will students learn from watching a film on an uneducated and illiterate person like Modi". He said "Children and people do not know how many degrees the prime minister holds". Later when asked by reporters about his choice of words, Nirupam said the ruling party need not object to each and every word, and "in democracy the prime minister is not god".

Furthermore Anil Shirole, a BJP MP from Maharashtra tweeted, "PM is not a representative of one party, and He is the Prime Minister of the Country and its people”. Further a government official said that ZP schools were asked to screen the short film "Chalo Jeete Hai" on September 18 as it has a "social message" and would inspire students. Moreover the 32 minute film "Chalo Jeete Hai" is directed by Mangesh Hadawale and presented by Aanand L Rai and Mahaveer Jain, is based on the early life of Modi.
