The letter received from Alumni Association of the university to Agnihotri states: “I regret to inform you that due to model code of conduct prevailing due to state election, we are unable to allow you to screen the movie on ‘Buddha In A Traffic Jam’. Please bear with us. I instruct the office to refund the booking money. Thank you”.
