Protests held in Cgarh too; but masses rush to view Padmavat
Protests and slogan raising were also witnessed in Chhattisgarh as film Padmavat released on January 25.
As per reports received, activists of Hindu Yuva Manch congregated in Durg to protest but heavy police deployment prevented any untoward incident.
With so much protests, there was also in general quite inquisitiveness among the masses to view the film.
This was also evident from the fact that masses turned up in large numbers to view the film and this was visible in both Raipur and Durg.
In Raipur itself, the Bajrang Dal activists staged demonstrations in Magneto mall but here too the police deployment prevented the protests from getting ugly.
It need be mentioned that some states had approached the Supreme Court to demand ban on Padmavat film but the apex court approved the film and also directed the states to ensure law and order situation in wake of the film release.
