Padmaavat: Haryana to abide by SC orders

Gurgaon has been put on high alert and prohibitory orders have been imposed to prevent any kind of protest near cinema halls or multiplexes ahead of the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmaavat on Thursday

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi said the Wednesday attack on a school bus in Gurugram in Haryana was "more saddening and shameful" that showed how the Modi and the Haryana governments had "failed to maintain law and order". "Violence and hatred are the weapons of the weak", he tweeted. The attackers threw stones at the school bus, smashing its windows.

A school bus carrying children and staff was also damaged in stone-pelting, though no one was said to be injured. A video of the incident went viral on social media just minutes after the incident on Wednesday showing terrified students ducking and crying in fear. A teacher had her arms wrapped around a frightened girl.

The Congress President also condemned the violence against children by the mobs which have been protesting the release of the controversial film.

The Congress had so far taken a nuanced stand on the movie and often found itself on the same side as the BJP.

At least four top private schools announced holiday on Thursday in view of more violent attacks by the terrorists belonging to Rajput Karni Sena. Assembly elections are slated to be held in Rajasthan later this year while two Lok Sabha constituencies - Ajmer and Alwar - are in the middle of campaigning and will vote on Monday.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia, however, were unsparing in their criticism.

He added that the Haryana government is trying to curb the violence that erupted in the state against the movie and ensured that stringent actions will be taken against the culprits. The protesters allegedly belonged to Rajput group Karni Sena.

"Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which bans unlawful assembly, has been imposed in view of 'Padmaavat' release in various cinema halls and multiplexes on January 25 as there is likelihood of law and order problem", the official said.
