Indian Peoples' Theatre Association organised a dharna against vulgar and violent singing, outside the district administrative complex on Tuesday. The oprotesters burnt an effigy and submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner.


Protesters alleged that most singers had simply let go of any rationale for the choice of lyrics in their songs, but these were having a very negative impact on the younger generation.

They claimed that there was a definite link between the rising incidents of crime and these songs. They also alleged that such cheap songs were bringing a very bad name to the state and demanded a stringent law to stop such songs to come into market.
