PM Modi Needs An ‘English Accent’ To Appeal To Intellectuals, Says Chetan Bhagat

Updated on 9 July, 2016 at 12:25 pm By

After being criticised for poking fun at historians on Twitter recently, Indian author Chetan Bhagat has once again made comments which might get him into trouble with intellectuals.

Early on Saturday, Bhagat said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would not have faced flak if he had been educated at an elite institution.

He said, “Had Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and other leaders been to Doon School and had a foreign English accent, then these privileged class people would not have said anything against them.”

Bhagat criticised those who had returned their awards in protest against growing intolerance in the country saying that there was indeed a problem in the country but not a crisis that would force such a move.

In the past too Bhagat has tweeted about his disapproval over personalities returning their awards



 

He said that there is complete freedom of speech and expression in India and that “nobody has ever asked me to say or not say something”.

Bhagat argued that “privileged people” in big cities have not been able to digest the fact that the current generation believes in passion, hard work and talent.

“Even if these people return 500 awards, my five tweets are enough for them,” he claimed.
