JALANDHAR: Youth Congress activists on Friday staged protests outside movie halls here against the screening of the film "The Accidental Prime Minister" which is based on the tenure of former PM Manmohan Singh.

 

However, the Jalandhar Congress disapproved the action and said the party would never "oppose freedom of speech", which it values deeply as part of its ideology.

Youth Congress activists staged a protest outside a PVR movie hall Jalandhar here. They also raised slogans against the actors and the producer of the film.

 

The film, which was released today, features actor Anupam Kher as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The film is based on Singh's then media adviser Sanjaya Barus 2014 memoir of the same name and details Singhs relationship with the Congress partys Gandhi family.
