ABVP reacts to screening
Reacting to the screening, ABVP student leader Mahesh said, “We have taken up the matter with the university authorities and demanded action against the organisers. The group organised screening without permission on the campus premises.”

India denounces ‘propaganda’
Earlier, India denounced the controversial BBC documentary series on Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week calling it a ‘propaganda piece’ designed to push a discredited narrative.
“We think this is a propaganda piece designed to push a particular discredited narrative. The bias, lack of objectivity, and frankly continuing colonial mindset are blatantly visible,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said during a media briefing.
The MEA spokesperson added that the documentary is a reflection of individuals that are peddling this narrative again.
Meanwhile, reacting strongly to the BBC documentary, more than 300 eminent Indians, including retired judges, bureaucrats, and armed forces veterans, signed a statement slamming the British national broadcaster for showing “unrelenting prejudice” towards India and its leader.
