The Youth Congress in Maharashtra has demanded a special pre-release screening for it’s office-bearers of the movie Accidental Prime Minister, which is based on the tenure of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“Looking at the trailer of the movie it is understood that facts have been played with and presented in incorrect manner with regards to the ex-Prime Minister Resp. Manmohan Singh ji, UPA chairperson Resp. Smt. Sonia Gandhi ji and Congress party to malign the image of the party which is not acceptable to us,” Maharashtra Youth Congress president Satyajeet Tambe-Patil said in a letter to Sunil Bohra and Dhaval Gada, producers of the film.

While demanding a special screening before the movie’s release, the letter said, “if any unfactual scenes or story is being published to malign the image of the Congress party and its leaders, those should be edited or deleted.”

Mr Tambe-Patil has threatened that if the movie is not shown to th office-bearers, the option to stop the screening of the film across India remains open to them as “it will be understood that you are doing this deliberately”. He warned the producers that they would be responsible for the consequences.

The movie is based on a book of the same name authored by Sanjaya Baru, Mr. Singh’s media advisor during his stint in UPA-1.
