She claims she was once a supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and was “astonished” when Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi agreed to release her documentary on Punjab’s drug menace as she had been a critic of his on Twitter until a year ago.
Sadhavi Khosla Dalal, who boasts over 26,000 followers on Twitter, said, “PM Modi follows me on Twitter. I used to be his supporter on Twitter. I was excited when he discussed the drug problem in Punjab in his radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ in December 2014.”
The PM, however, has let her down, said Sadhavi. “I sent him many tweets asking him to take action against drug smugglers in Punjab. But he didn’t respond. Then I wrote open letters to him. But he responded to none.”
But Rahul, who she used to criticise on Twitter, readily responded to her invitation to launch the documentary, said Sadhavi. “It shows he has the capacity to listen,” the film-maker said.
