New Delhi: Salman’s Eid release Tubelight hit the theatres on Friday and failed to get the momentum that a usual Salman movie gathers. It’s the second hit-n-run case where Salman is the prime accused. While Salman fans are expecting that movie will gain momentum with time, opposition has blamed the Ministry of Power for the failure.
After Tubelight failed to create an impact among public, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi attacked Piyush Goyal and demanded his resignation. Rahul Gandhi in a series of tweets to Piyush Goyal said
“Mr. @PiyushGoyal since you claim that more than 90% villages have been electrified, you must take the blame of Tubelight’s failure.”
“During UPA time Transformers worked, but under BJP’s rule both SRK’s fan and Salman’s Tubelight couldn’t perform. @PiyushGoyal must resign.”
BJP spokesman Giriraj Singh replied to Rahul Gandhi’s tweets in a debate on Republic Hour. Giriraj Singh said “Rahul Ji allegations are baseless. BJP has distributed more than ten lakh LED bulbs and if people still want Tubelight it’s not out fault.” Giriraj Singh further added “Tubelight consumes more units compared to an LED of similar rating. It’s time people move from Tubelight to LED”
CM Arvind Kejriwal also attacked the government saying “I myself is an engineer from IIT. I know how BJP hacked Tubelight and Fan. They are doing this to save power and to show that India is a power surplus country. It’s a scam of worth ₹585 crores and sab mile hue hain ji”
Though Piyush Goyal has not yet spoken on the issue but the opposition is gaining more momentum than this Salman’s movie ever did.
