New Delhi, May 25: The Congress on Tuesday questioned the government’s decision to invite Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan to host a show at India Gate here on May 28 to highlight the rendra Modi government’s achievements in the last two years. “We don’t have any objection either to Amitabh Bachchan or Prime Minister rendra Modi because we respect Bachchan as an actor and Modi as the prime minister but what sigl will it send to the agencies investigating the Pama Papers leaks,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters here. “Prime Minister rendra Modi needs to think over it,” he added. The Congress leader said that although Bachchan had denied his involvement in the Pama Papers controversy and “I believe he will be exonerated”, but it (invite) sends a wrong sigl to the investigating agencies as well as the tion”. The event at India Gate is likely to comprise talk shows on the government’s achievements, interspersed with cultural programmes. (IANS)
