BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya mocks Congress on Twitter, posts scenes from Netflix show ‘Sacred Games’


Netflix web series ‘Sacred Games’ is gaining humongous popularity on social media, not only for acting but also for content. BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya has posted a clip from the web series Sacred Games and in the clip one of the lead characters of the series Ganesh Eknath Gaitonde played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui is speaking about the situation after the death of Indira Gandhi and how her son Rajiv Gandhi went on to become the next prime minister and eventually getting involved in the Bofors scandal.

However, the tweet has sparked a controversy on Twitter, and social media users are giving their mix response on the post. Some are supporting BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya’s tweet while some are trolling him.

On the other hand, Congress leader from Kolkata has filed a compliant against Netflix and makers of web series for insulting former PM Rajiv Gandhi. Amit Malviya took a jibe and posted another tweet with a video clip, “This is what seems to have irked the Congress, their own record on freedom of expression notwithstanding!”, he tweeted.

Even a case has been filed in Delhi High Court against the web series for showing derogatory scenes. The petitioner is demanding to delete the scenes from the series, as it is insulting Rajiv Gandhi.

The petition also alleged that the show “incorrectly depicts historical events of the country like Bofors case, Shah Bano case, Babri Masjid case and communal riots”.
