What was the matter?
Previously, Ninong Ering wrote a letter to PMO, wherein the letter he had asked the Prime Minister of India to not allow the Battlegrounds Mobile India (Rebranded version of PUBG Mobile). He mentioned in the letter that the government had banned 108 apps including PUBG Mobile last due to security concerns and now they are re-launching the game with a new name. While reacting to the letter by Ering, Paras made a racists comment on him and the state too.
Paras Singh commented on the video, “I don’t think he is an Indian. Arunachal Pradesh is on China’s side and it belongs to the people of China. In a way, Arunachal Pradesh is with China touches India a little.”
Reacting to this video, Ering made the comment, “This immature comment made by Paras Singh has not hurt me personally. He has the right to point out mistakes or to oppose anything, but the racist remarks are serious which should not be done. This was not the first time when I had requested the government to ban these apps.”
Later Paras posted a video on his channel apologizing for making such remarks. Check out the video below. In another video, his mother was seen apologizing on behalf of Paras.
