Now the Congress is the new Karni Sena of India. The party has threatened the producers of the upcoming movie, The Accidental Prime Minister, with dire consequences if they refuse to pre-screen the movie in front of party leaders for being edited according to their own wishes.

In a letter written to the producers of the movie, Maharashtra Youth Congress president Satyajeet Tambe Patil told them that if they did not submit the movie for pre-screening, they had "other options" to stop the airing of the movie across India and for which the producers would be responsible.

The reason for the high-handed demand of the Congress seems to be its unease with the way former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been protrayed in the movie.

Tambe alleged the trailer of the movie betrayed that facts regarding ex-PM Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi had been twisted and that it needs to be created with the party before its formal launch .
