"There is some film on Modi which is being forcibly screened". Children should be kept away from politics. The Bharatiya Janata Party strongly objected to his choice of words but in his defence, Nirupam said that the prime minister is no god that he can not be questioned.

Addressing party workers of five Lok Sabha constituencies via the NaMo app, Prime Minister Modi said the BJP's biggest strength is its party workers. 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. Though Aiyar was suspended from the Congress after he used derogatory words against Modi ahead of the first phase of Gujarat Assembly elections, there are several Congress leaders who haven't learnt from their past mistakes.

The Congress leader Wednesday said, "Jo bachhe school, college mein padh rahe hain woh Modi jaise unpadh-gawaar ke baare mein jaan kar unko kya milne wala hai? What are the forces which pressurise Delhi University not to release his degree, even when it's claimed he studied there?".

His comment drew sharp reaction from BJP leaders with the party's Maharashtra unit spokesperson Shaina NC calling Mr Nirupam "mentally deranged".

Reacting to Mr Nirupam's remarks, Shaina NC tweeted, "Yet another obnoxious comment by a mentally deranged @sanjaynirupam".

Here's where it gets good. "This guy goes, 'Blake, Blake, your bleep are fantastic ". "I was like, "Excuse me? This is not okay". Blake explained that camera flash caused the transparency and she quickly fixed it with tape.

Replying to a question on opposition parties trying to stitch an alliance for the 2019 polls, Modi assured the party workers that the BJP will win again.

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. "Sanjay Nirupam, by insulting our PM you have insulted and disrespected the office, the country and the Constitution drafted by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar", he said in a tweet.

A government official told PTI that the decision to screen the film in schools on September 18 was taken because 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.

Opposition Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) have slammed the BJP-led dispensation over the decision.
