Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi "illiterate" has stoked a new political controversy in Maharashtra. Children should be kept away from politics. The Bharatiya Janata Party strongly objected to his choice of words but in his defence, Nirupam said that the prime minister is no god that he can not be questioned.

He added. "Children and people do not know how many degrees the prime minister holds". Expressing his dissatisfaction over the forcible screening of some film on Modi, Nirupam said our children shouldn't watch such films because they are unaware of the PM's educational qualification. "The words I used aren't undignified", he said in his defence. "What are the forces which pressurise Delhi University not to release his degree, even when it's claimed he studied there", he asked.

Nirupam called the prime minister "illiterate" and "uncultured" while attacking the BJP government in Maharashtra, while he was criticising its decision to screen a 32-minute film based on Modi's early life - named "Chalo Jeete Hai" - in the state's schools. The saffron party's Maharashtra unit spokesperson Shaina NC called Nirupam 'mentally deranged.' She wrote on Twitter, "Yet another obnoxious comment by a mentally deranged @sanjaynirupam".

Reacting to Nirupam's remarks, Shaina NC tweeted, "Yet another abnoxious comment by a mentally deranged @sanjaynirupam". Sure citizens will give a befitting reply in 2019 (sic).

Mr. Modi, who was nominated the BJP's prime ministerial candidate this day in 2013 for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, said only in the BJP can an ordinary party worker become its leader.

The Zilla Parishad (ZP) schools in Maharashtra have been asked to screen a short film on Modi next week, a directive which has drawn criticism from Opposition. A government official said that schools were asked to screen the short film "Chalo Jeete Hai" on September 18 as it has a "social message" and would inspire students.

"The Congress is now desperate to join hands with any party to survive".
