In a blistering attack over SAD-BJP govt, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Capt Amarinder Singh announced that he would release uncensored copies of the movie ‘Udta Punjab’ in Majitha in Amritsar district on June 17. Majitha is the constituency of senior Shiromani Akali Dal leader and Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia, who has been accused by political rivals of aiding the illicit drug trade.
Amarinder Singh, accused the revenue minister and said, “Since Majitha, like Mexico, is the epicentre of drug trade in Punjab, it was decided to release the movie there.”
Capt Amarinder has written to the producers of the movie, Anurag Kashyap and Ekta Kapoor, urging them to provide the uncensored CDs so that he can release it on the scheduled date to coincide with the worldwide premier of the movie on June 17.
He has also clarified to the producers that all the legal onus of releasing the uncensored CDs of the movie will be on him only. At the same time he took a dig at censor board chairman Pahlaj Nihalani for his “unfailing devotion towards the BJP with his irrational attitude and utterances”.
