“Challenge it if Wrong; Why Pass Resolution”: Baghel on Guj Assembly Passing Resolution Against Broadcaster
RAIPUR: Commenting on the resolution passed by the Guj Assembly against BBC, Bhupesh Baghel questioned that if the documentary is wrong it should be challenged instead of passing a resolution.
“If the documentary is wrong then it should be challenged and there are ways to act upon it. But you (in an apparent reference to BJP) conducted raids against them and intimidated them which is not correct,” stated CM Baghel while talking to media in Raipur on Saturday.
Gujarat Assembly on March 10th passes a resolution requesting the Centre to take strict action against the BBC for tarnishing the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with its documentary on the 2002 Godhra riots.
CM Baghel on Friday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. During the meeting, CM Baghel discussed issues like the conduct of an early census, GST dues, and coal royalty with the Prime Minister.
The Chief Minister said that he has sought cooperation from the Prime Minister for the light metro service to be started from Nava Raipur to Durg.
The Union govt shortly after the release of the movie directed YouTube videos and Twitter posts sharing the controversial documentary to be blocked.
