JNU snaps electricity, internet to stop BBC documentary on PM Modi

New Delhi/IBNS: Jawaharlal Nehru University Tuesday snapped electricity and internet to stop students' plan to screen a banned BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi this evening.

The university snapped both power and electricity in the Students' Union office.

The screening of the documentary was set to begin at 9 pm and the students had planned to go ahead with it despite the disapproval of the administration.

The JNU administration had not given permission for the screening. It had even said that disciplinary action will be taken if the documentary is screened.

The Centre has blocked access to the two-part BBC documentary which claims to have investigated certain aspects of the 2002 Gujarat riots when Modi was the state's Chief Minister.

The government on Friday directed social media platforms Twitter and YouTube to block links to the series.

Earlier, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the two-part docu-series was a 'propaganda piece designed to push a particular discredited narrative'.
