Karni Sena welcomes censor board chief’s decision to skip JLF

Prasoon Joshi

Jaipur, Jan 27 : The Shree Rajput Karni Sena on Saturday welcomed censor board chief Prasoon Joshi’s decision not to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival, saying that possibly the CBFC chief was “repenting for his mistake at how he had hurt the sentiments of Rajputs” over the film “Padmaavat”.

Vijendra Singh, spokesperson of the organisation, said: “This comes as good news for us. We are glad that he respected the request of Karni Sena and cancelled his scheduled visit.

“It seems that he is repenting for his mistake at how he had hurt the sentiments of Rajputs. Realising what he has done, he is attempting to make amends it seems.”

Singh’s response came after Central Board of Film Certification Chairperson Prasoon Joshi said in a statement that he “will not be attending” the Zee Jaipur Literature Festival, where he was scheduled to address a session on Sunday.

Joshi’s decision comes in the wake of repeated threats by the Karni Sena, which has gone on a rampage after the censor board cleared Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmaavat” for release.

The Karni Sena had said it would not allow Joshi to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival, an annual popular event attending by celebrities.

Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi said: “We had requested him (Joshi) to avoid this visit and he accepted our request, and hence we are quite glad.”

The Karni Sena and other fringe elements are protesting “Padmaavat” saying it distorts history.

US President Donald Trump described the air in India, China, and Russia as “filthy” as he defended his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord and lauded his decisions with regard to reducing carbon emissions at Thursday’s final debate before the November 3 election.

“Look at China. How filthy it is. Look at Russia. Look at India, it’s filthy. The air is filthy,” said Trump while speaking on carbon emissions as he countered Democratic rival Joe Biden at a final debate moderated by NBC’s Kristen Welker.

Trump further claimed that under his administration the US has had the lowest emission numbers in the last 35 years.

Earlier during his first presidential debate against his Democratic challenger Joe Biden, the US President said India, China, and Russia “did not exactly give a straight count” on deaths due to the novel coronavirus.
