Twitter Is Making Narendra Modi Regret This Old Tweet After The "Udta Punjab" Debacle

Oops.

Posted on

While inaugurating a new building of the Bombay Art Society in February, Prime Minister Modi said the following words.

Art can't have any restrictions or limits: PM @narendramodi

He also added, "Art brings our history to life."

Unfortunately for him, a LOT of things have gone down in India since then that go exactly against what he said.

The latest controversy involves the Censor Board's refusal to clear Udta Punjab, a film based around Punjab's drug crisis, unless heavy edits are made.

The latest controversy involves the Censor Board's refusal to clear Udta Punjab, a film based around Punjab's drug crisis, unless heavy edits are made.

Users have now found Modi's tweet and are retweeting it heavily to remind the prime minister of his words.

People are hoping that he will influence things for the better, even as the centre keeps insisting that it has no involvement with the Censor Board.

Even though it's unlikely that the PM will respond, people haven't stopped making their voices heard through his tweet.

Come on, Mr. Modi. It's time to live up to your words.
