Howrah: What looks good on the screen could land one in trouble if you try to be 'filmy' in real life. Manoj Tiwary, who is Minister of State for Sports in the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal tried to borrow one dialogue from the movie 'Pushpa' which landed him in trouble forcing him to apologise for his choice of words when he addressed the TMC rally.
Taking a direct jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) cricketer-turned-politician Manoj Tiwary challenged the opposition with direct remarks and said "Jhukega nahi sala". His remarks came while addressing a TMC rally on Sunday.
Manoj Tiwary was seen encouraging the workers from the Howrah Maidan's assembly stage.
Asking the party followers and workers to remain united, he challenged the BJP. "Jhunkega nahi sala," said Tiwary as he directed the BJP workers to open their "ears" and listen to dialogues from the movie 'Pushpa'.
Triggering furore, his remarks soon received backlash. As media persons questioned his take during the rally, he was seen apologising during the briefing. "I should not have spoken like that," apologised Tiwary.
