Thiruvananthapuram: The BBC has released a documentary film. It portrays the link between Gujarat riots and Prime Minister Modi. This has been strongly opposed by the BJP.
In this case, former Union Minister A.K. Anthony’s son, Anil Anthony, yesterday on his Twitter page, protested against the BBC documentary on Prime Minister Modi.
In particular, even though there are differences of opinion between the Congress and the BJP, and there are many criticisms of Prime Minister Modi, the BBC should not interfere in domestic affairs. It is against Indian sovereignty. He mentioned that this is not acceptable.
Party Condemnation: The Congress party strongly opposed this. And the Congress party pressured Anil on social media to withdraw his opinion. He refused to accept this. Even after that, the party condemned him.
In this case, Anil announced yesterday that he will step down from the important responsibilities of the Congress party. In this regard, he has posted on his Twitter page, “I have resigned from the posts of Digital Media Coordinator of Kerala Congress Party and Social Media National Coordinator of All India Congress Party.” He has also attached his detailed resignation letter to the party leadership.
In another Twitter post, Anil Anthony said, “I made a neutral comment about a BBC documentary. But the party misunderstood it. Those who could talk about freedom of expression insisted that I withdraw my opinion. I refused.
After that, they posted comments on my Facebook page. As this hurt my heart, I resigned from the responsibilities of the party. But he did not leave the party.
