Cyclone Amphan: Pratim D Gupta Gives Befitting Reply To Trollers, Ask Them ‘To Stop Playing Politics’
The cyclone Amphan which hit West Bengal on Wednesday has left 80 people dead. The death toll is expected to rise. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also reached Kolkata to take stock of the damage caused by the cyclone in the state. The cyclone has destroyed houses, agriculture crops, uprooted trees and electric poles. 

Amid this situation, Pratim D Gupta was trolled for his tweet to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Giving befitting reply to his trollers, director took to his micro blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Those who are abusing me, Bengal CM, other Bengalis because I simply tweeted that the Prime Minister should help in this hour of #Amphan crisis, you guys can be all the great things you claim to be but not Indians. Please stop playing politics in the middle of this devastation.”


He further tweeted, “No one blamed the PM for the cyclone. He is a very powerful man but even for him to orchestrate a cyclone of this severity is bit of a stretch. Was only asking for some attention and help in this hour of catastrophe which has unfortunately been missing.”


“The state government is doing its bit from what I hear. If the centre also helps out, maybe the healing will be faster. This is not the time for us vs them. It's the time to join forces and help save a state of the country, which is in dire straits,” he added.


The cyclone has left thousands of people homeless in several parts of the state. The water has entered in many low-lying areas. Large portions of Kolkata and its suburbs has a population of 14.1 million and is currently flooded.
