Chennai/New Delhi, Oct 20 (ANI): The political parties on Friday locked horns over Bharatiya Janata Party’s objections over Tamil movie ‘Mersal’, showcasing Centre-led Goods and Services Tax (GST) in a bad light. DMK leader TKS Elangovan termed it ‘bullying’ on part of the government, saying that Mersal’s director possess right to criticise government policies, being a voter and citizen of India. BJP leader Sudesh Verma, however, reiterated his party’s stand and called for ‘corrective steps’ on part of movie’s directors Atlee and Vijayendra Prasad, adding no one has the right to launch ‘misinformation campaign.’ Earlier, BJP Tamil Nadu Chief, Tamilisai, condemned the ‘misconceptions’ about Central Government’s schemes and Hindu religion projected in the movie, and called for removal of such representations. GST was implemented across the nation on July 1st this year.
