Sangrur MP and Aam Aadmi Party leader Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said the censor board has acted against “Udta Punjab” at the behest of Parkash Singh Badal-led SAD-BJP government in Punjab.
“The action against the film comes at the behest of Badal government. It’s an attack on freedom of speech and expression in highlighting the extent of drug problem in the state. By indulging in such acts, the state government cannot hide the reality of Punjab by pushing the state into a drug menace during its nine-year rule,” Mann alleged.
“Movies are the mirror to the society and they project what is actually happening around us,” he said.
