Congress triggered over PM Modi’s appearance in Man Vs Wild, peddles old lies and asks Discovery to share shooting timings

Congress lad claimed earlier that PM Modi was 'busy shooting for a film' when the Pulwama attacks had happened. Manish Tewari now wants the Discovery Channel to reveal the exact timings of the shooting.

The Congress party has ‘asked’ the Discovery Channel to make public the timings of the shooting of their special episode in Man Vs Wild where PM Modi is set to appear with the show’s host Bear Grylls. The special episode featuring PM Modi in the Man Vs Wild show will be telecast on August 12 at 9 pm.

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari has referred to an old claim by former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and has asked Discovery Channel to make public the exact timings when the episode was shot.

Tewari has stated to PTI that if one would recall that when the Pulwama terror incident took place earlier this year, at that time it was pointed out that the prime minister addressed a public meeting at 5.15 pm that day, but he did not condemn the incident or paid obeisance to the martyrs or warn Pakistan.

Tewari has further stated, “There is an inescapable conclusion that the Prime Minister was unaware even after two hours that such a huge terrorist attack has taken place. If the Prime Minister was aware, then it reflected gross insensitivity by not condemning the incident on the first occasion that he got, the first occasion was the public meeting that he was holding and now with this particular film ready to be telecast on August 12.”

Manish Tewari added that it is incumbent upon the Discovery Channel to put it out on the public space the exact timings and duration the said episode was shot in the Jim Corbett National Park.

It is notable here that earlier in February, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi had shared the media images of the PM visiting the Jim Corbett National Park and had claimed that the PM was ‘busy shooting a film’ when the Pulwama attack had happened. Congress had claimed then that even 3 hours after the attack, PM Modi was busy shooting for a film in the Jim Corbett. The claim was categorically debunked here.

The BJP had then called Rahul Gandhi a liar and stated that the then Congress president is sharing photos from the morning to mislead the nation. It is notable here that the Pulwama attack had happened around 3.15 on the afternoon of 14 February and media reports had started pouring in a while later.

Interestingly, Congress had itself shared a video of Rahul Gandhi dancing and laughing with people after the Pulwama attack. They rushed to delete the images and video after their attack on PM Modi was countered.

As per a latest report in the Economic Times, government sources have confirmed that PM Modi was already back from Jim Corbett about 30 minutes before the Pulwama Attack happened. ET has stated quoting government officials that PM Modi had a number of prior commitments that day and he was in the shooting for about 45 minutes. PM Modi was reportedly informed about the attack on his way back from Corbett to Rudrapur and immediately after being informed, he had held review calls to access the situation.

Discovery Channel had yesterday announced a special episode of their immensely popular wildlife show Man Vs Wild where wildlife explorer Bear Grylls will share an adventurous journey into the wilderness with PM Modi. The news was shared by the channel and Bear Grylls himself on the occasion of the International Tiger Day yesterday and had instantly become the top news in India.
