The Vivek Oberoi and Boman Irani starrer PM Narendra Modi is scheduled to hit the theatres on April 12, 2019 and The National Students' Union of India - Goa, the Congress party's student wing urged the Election Commission to ban the release of the movie before the elections and called it a "propaganda by the BJP to influence" voters during the upcoming Lok Sabha elections which is held between April 11 to May 19 and the results will be announced on May 23, 2019.
NSUI Demands PM Narendra Modi Release To Be Stalled During The Election Process
In a letter written to the Election Commission, the Goa NSUI President said, "The NSUI Goa writes to you demanding: ban of the movie in theatres in states during the 'election silence' period that is two days prior to the day of voting and ban of the movie in the Lok Sabha Constituency where the Prime Minister would be contesting."
The Movie Is A Propaganda By The BJP To Influence Voters
The letter added, "The NSUI Goa strongly believes that a movie on the BJP Prime Minister, who has failed miserably, is nothing but a propaganda by the BJP to influence the public during the model code of conduct without including the expenditure incurred for the movie in the election expenditure of Narendra Modi who will be contesting as a Member of Parliament."
The Code Of Conduct
The code of conduct came into effect from March 10 across the country and we'll have to wait and watch what the Election Commission will decide with regards to the release of the movie. Directed by Omung Kumar, the release date which is April 12, coincides with the start of the voting process in India.
