AA Rahim, Narendra Modi | Sreekesh, ANI
Thiruvananthapuram: CPM MP AA Rahim on Friday took to his official social media handles and called out Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks endorsing the film ‘The Kerala Story’.
Modi, while addressing a poll rally in Karnataka in earlier hours of the day referenced the film in his speech and said, it "is under discussion these days; it is said the film reveals terror conspiracies in that State."
According to Rahim, Modli’s whitewashing of the anti-Kerala propaganda movie is uncalled for. "Modi should withdraw his statements and apologise to the people of Kerala immediately", he noted.
Incidentally, Congress MP K Muraleedhran too had called out Modi's remarks related to the film and Congress. "'The Kerala Story' shows the ugly truth of terrorism and exposes the design of the terrorists," the PM said, adding that the Congress is standing with "terror sympathisers" who are trying to get the film banned.
"Congress is opposing the film on terrorism and standing with terror sympathisers. The Congress is throwing a protective shield around terrorism in the interest of vote bank," PM added.
Muraleedhran in response said that "The Congress has been opposing terrorism in the country from the very beginning. We are against communal forces as well. PM Modi says Congress is supporting terrorists for vote bank politics. We are only supporting our minorities and standing up for their rights."
