Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia hit out at the BJP for being "easily intimidated by" and "fearing" certain films that invoke a sense of social responsibility among people.
In response to a question on a BJP leader's call to boycott the Deepika Padukone-starrer ''Chhapaak'', Mr Sisodia said it is very disgraceful to see people "getting intimidated" by films based on social issues.
"How can they be scared of a movie which is based on an acid attack victim?" he asked.
"What kind of a political party is (BJP) if it is easily intimidated by and fears certain films that invoke a sense of social responsibilities among people and other important issues such as education," he said.
