Akhileshsubtle art of request to megastar Amitabh Bachchan : On Gujrat Tourism Ad

New Delhi: Samajwadi Party chief adn Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav expressed in a very rich and subtle way, attacking the Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of fourth phase voting for Assembly elections. Addressing a rally in Raibareli, Akhilesh criticised Modi over Gujrat Tourism advertisement which showcased superstar Amitabah Bachchan.

"Ek gadhe ka vigyapan aata hai, main iss sadi ke sabse bade mahanayak se kahunga ke ab aap Gujarat ke gadhon ka prachar mat kariye (There's an ad on TV which shows donkeys. I appeal to century's biggest star...please stop endorsing donkeys of Gujarat)," Akhilesh said referring to one Gujarat Tourism TV advertisement which features Amitabh Bachchan.

The ad showing Amitabh inviting tourists to visit tghe Wild Ass Sanctuary located in Little Rann of Kutch in Khilesh.

The statement came a day after PM Modi stirred a massive controversy by drawing a parallel between Hindu and Muslim festivals.

"Gaon me kabristan banta hai to shamshaan bhi banna chahiye. Ramzan me bijli aati hai to Diwali me bhi aani chahiye. Bhedbhav nhi hona chahiye (If land is given for cemetery in a village, it should be given for cremation ground also. If electricity is supplied during Ramazan, it should be supplied during Diwali also. There should not be discrimination," Modi said addressing an election rally in Fatehpur.

The Opposition lashed out at PM Modi's statement which they termed 'communal'. The congress said it will be filing a complaint with the Election Commission against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Such statements are totally unwarranted and the PM is trying to communalise the atmosphere for the political gains. He is bringing dispute to his post as well," party of legal and human rights cell K C Mittal told India Today.
