ABVP demands apology from KBC’s producers

, TNN | Oct 17, 2011, 06.00PM IST

Irked with the question – Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad is the students’ wing of which political party? – asked by Big B on KBCrecently, ABVP’s general secretary Umesh Dutt has demanded a public apology from the show’s producers.

ABVP strongly objected to this and wants the show to apologise for spreading wrong information about students’ organisation of India. Sunil Bansal, All India Co-organising Secretary, ABVP, told DT, “We have sent a letter to KBC team requesting them to rectify the mistake they made by asking a wrong question on their show. Unhone aise sawaal se logon ko galatmessage diya hai.

This error only questions the credibility of the game show. Not only have the showmakers asked the wrong question, they have also made the contestant win Rs 3, 20,000 by considering the reply correct. And what’s funny is that the contestant got the answer when she used her lifeline – phone a friend. Since Amitabh Bachchan is active on Twitter, people have tweeting their reactions to ensure immediate action is taken to set it right. Since the mistake happened on national TV, it would be best to rectify it on TV. We did get a call from KBC team on Wednesday and they have admitted their mistake. But what they will do is still not clear. They have asked for some time. If we don’t get a positive response from them within 7 days, then we will have to send them a legal notice demanding public apology.”

While the channel hasn’t commented on the issue, Vani Tripathi from Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha said the masses too believe this wring information to be correct. “ABVP is not the student wing of BJP. Just because many activists in BJP like Nitin Gatkari, Jaitley have been a part of ABVP during their college days, people think the organization is a part of the political party. In fact, BJP has only one youth wing Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha. ABVP has ideological coherence with RSS but in no way is the organization linked to any political party.””

Vikas Dahiya, who has been the national executive member of ABVP, said, “ABVP was formed in 1949. ABVP’s registration No. S-385/1949-50 People should be told about this. How can we let them accept wrong information about ABVP?””
