Haryana government is mulling over approaching the Supreme Court for reviewing its decision wherein it has stayed ban on release of movie “Padmaavat” imposed by the governments in many states including Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Haryana Health minister Anil Vij said on Thursday that the state government would go for legal opinion in to the matter and could move the Apex Court with review petition.
Vij said, “I have not yet got the copy of the decision. After getting the copy, we would seek legal opinion and would move for the review of the decision if needed.” Another minister Kavita Jain also said that the Haryana government would mull over all the possibilities and review petition could be one of such options to be adopted by the state government keeping in view the concerns of the Rajput community that has been opposing the release of the film.
Keeping in view the sentiments of a large number of people who felt that historical facts had been distorted in the film, the Haryana Cabinet headed by Chief Minister ManoharLalKhattar on 16 January banned the release of the movie in the state. Notably, many Haryana ministers, including Vij and VipulGoel have been seeking ban on the movie in the state.
