A promotional video for a Discovery channel series featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent Twitter in a tizzy. Bear Grylls, the host of the show tweeted the video saying people would get to see “the unknown side” of the prime minister.
The tweet by Grylls said that this was to create awareness about wildlife and environment conservation.
The tweet saw hundreds of comments calling out Modi and pointing out that his government had taken steps that would harm the environment. Twitter users also wondered whether this was the show he was shooting for even after the Pulwama attack where 40 CRPF jawans were killed.
It will also be good to remember that the prime minister used the Pulwama incident and the Balakot air strike repeatedly during his campaign during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
Here’s a look at what Twitter users said:
One user tweeted out a video of Modi responding to a student’s question of climate change. He he is heard telling the girl, “The climate has not changed, we have changed”.
Many others reminded Grylls of the 2002 Gujarat riots where hundreds of people were killed in a riot under Modi’s leadership.
Several other’s criticised Modi over Pulwama, not holding press conferences and India’s economy.
