Padmavati row intensifies, protests in Gurugram, police lathicharge Karni Sena in Rajasthan

Gurugram: Members of Rajput Karni Sena on Saturday launched a fresh protest against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ on Saturday.

In Haryana’s Gurugram, the Karni Sena workers protested outside the deputy commissioners’ office against the release of the movie.

“Have submitted a memorandum to deputy commissioner to ban ‘Padmavati’ in Haryana. We want a 100 percent ban and not a conditional ban on the movie,” Karni Sena President Mahipal Singh Makrana said in Gurugram today.


In another incident, the Mewar Regional General Assembly and the Karni Sena called for a bandh in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara today. Apart from Bhilwara, the shutdown was also observed in Mandal and Hamirgarh towns.

During the demonstration, members staged a protest outside a Bhilwara movie theatre. The Sena members, as they continued the campaign against the movie, clashed with the staff of the theatre and created a ruckus inside it.


The members even took out protest rallies against the movie.
