Questioning the timing of the release of the controversial film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said that all prime ministers were accidental. However, she didn’t name anybody.  She also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said if people were making such films, then there would also be films like ‘The Disastrous PM’. She also claimed that such films were made by twisting facts. 

"I have come to know that some people are staging political plays. Just before the (Lok Sabha) election, they have released a film titled 'The Accidental Prime Minister'. That way, all are accidental prime ministers. I did not get the meaning of this (accidental PM)," the Trinamool Congress chief said after inaugurating the 23rd Jatra Utsav. 

"I do not do politics with the Congress and we have (ideological) differences. I have come out of the Congress and formed the Trinamool Congress with your blessings. But I believe that what is being done by twisting facts is unethical. That is why those who are making films like 'The Accidental PM' must also watch another film titled 'The Disastrous PM'. If we can have 'The Accidental Prime Minister', then we must have a film on 'The Disastrous Prime Minister'," she said.

No one will be spared, the chief minister added.

Without naming PM Modi, the TMC chief compared him with Sholay's ‘Gabbar Singh’ and said people would soon teach him a lesson. The chief minister said that the common people were scared of him because of his attitude.  

"The common people will not let you (Modi) go scot-free. Always remember that you (Modi) will see what you will show. Look in the mirror and see your own image. You do not know how to smile and how to talk politely. People are scared seeing you and they think of you as Gabbar Singh," Banerjee said.
