BJP moves Election Commission against alleged Mamata Banerjee biopic slated to release on 3rd May

Recently a controversy broke out regarding the release of biographical movie “PM Narendra Modi” during the times of election. The Election Commission put an end to all the disputes and complaints raised by the opposition parties by halting the release of the movie, which is based on the life and journey of Prime Minster Narendra Modi.

But now BJP has also moved to the Election Commission against another biopic. Bharatiya Janta Party has written a letter to the Election Commission of India on Wednesday to review a biopic based on the Chief Minister of West Bengal named as ‘Baghini’ as the Lok Sabha elections will be going on.

In the letter, BJP said, “this is to draw your attention to the news in the media that a biopic allegedly of Mamata Banerjee Baghini will be released on May 3, 2019.”

They even asked it to review the movie the way PM Modi’s biopic was reviewed. The movie on Mamata Banerjee is set to be released on 3rd May. Election Commission of India has ordered for the review of the biopic from The Chief Electoral Officer of West Bengal.

The Model Code of Conduct came into effect from March 10th 2019.
