Padmaavat: Haryana to abide by SC orders

Padmaavat: Haryana to abide by SC orders

"If they can attack school buses and Haryana roadways buses openly despite prohibitory orders and tight security arrangements of the Gurgaon Police, we cannot take a chance", a teacher was quoted by NDTV.

Gandhi, while condemning the violence against children by the mobs, said there was no bigger cause to justify violence against children. "Violence and hatred are the weapons of the weak", he tweeted.

The Congress chief's comments came in the backdrop of attack on a school bus by anti-Padmaavat protestors in Gurugram on Wednesday, a day before the release of the movie. Khattar government failed to maintain law and order on all fronts.

Sandhu said 33 cinema halls in 9 districts of the state are now showing the film.

Communications in-charge of Congress party, Randeep Surjewala also slammed the incident in a video he shared on twitter, calling for the Manohar Lal Khattar government in Haryana to quit if it can not control violence.

On the issue of protesters attacking a school bus in Gurgaon, Amu told ANI, "We wouldn't have been able to forgive ourselves had a child got injured".

"Terrified children cry inconsolably and anarchy prevails". "One other teacher and I chose to stay on the bus until the last stop", said Bhargava, adding that some students also kept asking how their parents would return home from work in such an atmosphere.

They even damaged buses plying on the roads.

According to the Hindustan Times, 100 people from across the city affiliated with the Rajput Karni Sena were taken into preventive detention, to ensure law and order maintenance. As the bus approached Bhondsi around 3.15 pm, a mob of "50-60 young boys", allegedly raising slogans in support of Karni Sena and carrying "rod, sticks, stones, and petrol", barged inside.

This comes after violence stirred in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan due to the release of the film "Padmaavat".
