Web Series On PM Modi Pulled Down
The makers of Modi: The Journey Of A Common Man, a web series based on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s life, streaming on Eros Now, have pulled down the show from their app as well as all other partner platforms, reports Mid-day. This decision came in a week after the Election Commission directed Eros Now to stop streaming the web show on their platform.

A report in a leading tabloid states, “While the first five episodes had dropped online on April 3 - a week before the seven-phase Lok Sabha polls began in India - the remaining five episodes were scheduled to stream from April 18. However, on April 20, the EC cited the model code of conduct while issuing the directive.”

The co-producer of the show, Ashish Wagh told Mid-day, "I think it's fair of the Election Commission to ask us to stop airing the show for a while. It's only for the polling tenure. If the show being aired in the current social climate is against the diktat of a government body, it's okay for it to be stopped at the moment."

He further added, "We have to have faith in the law of the land. I am sure the show will be back post elections. We have chronicled the journey of Narendra Modi before he became the Prime Minister. It's a pure human story of hardships without any propagandist undertone. We had particularly kept it such."
