The Trinamool Congress shared a offensive video of him accepting an Oscar for best actor on Twitter for his recent gesture of washing the feet of “safai karmacharis” at the Kumbh Mela. The video drew a lot of flak on the micro-blogging website.
TMC took to Twitter and posted a video montage of clips from the Academy Awards ceremony and a certain elated Modi exchanging pleasantries with a few foreign dignitaries.
In the video, PM Modi is also seen being flocked by a large group of people who are congratulating him, apparently for the best actor win.
Actors Gary Oldman and Allison Janney, who presented the recently concluded Academy Award to this year’s winner Rami Malek, were seen announcing PM Modi’s name as best actor. The voice-over was doctored from Rami Malek to PM Modi.
The song Bohemian Rhapsody by iconic rock band Queen played in the background, which is also the title of the movie actor Rami Malek won the Oscar for.
The montage had the title — “And the Oscar goes to… #Oscars”</h4

The tweet comes at a time when the TMC chief, Mamata Banerjee, has declared a full-blown war against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and PM Modi.
PM Modi was at the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj on Sunday to take a holy dip at the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati. Post the dip, he paid his respects to a handful of sanitation workers and awarded them with the “Swachh Kumbh Swachh Aabhaar” award. Things however took an unexpected turn when the prime minister washed and cleaned the feet of the awardees in front of television cameras.

TMC chief, Mamata Banerjee, has declared a full-blown war against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and PM Modi.
On the feet-washing gesture by PM Modi, Mamata Banerjee said, “BJP is destroying communal harmony. The first thing they do after waking up in the morning is tilak. Now, they are doing aarti, wearing saffron. They can’t wash off their sins by washing the feet. They are mired in sins from head to toe.”
PM Modi’s BJP and Trinamool Congress are at loggerheads with each other and often launch scathing attacks at each other. Mamata Banerjee, at a mega rally in Kolkata, joined hands with 23 political parties with the common agenda of ousting BJP from the centre.
