<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Several political leaders and social organisations dismissed the Supreme Court order and requested the prime minister to take the matter, of banning Padmavati, in hand. Lokendra Singh Kalvi, patron of Rajput Karni Sena, on Tuesday, made a public appeal to prime minister Narendra Modi to take the ball in his court now. He claimed that the decision of the Apex court loses importance when the prime minister takes charge.“I request Prime Minister to take the issue in his hand now. Narendra Modi had also banned the released of Jodha Akhbar in Gujarat and Rajasthan when he was the state’s chief minister. He can now ban Padmavati nationally,” Kalvi said. He then informed that the central government has the power to ban the film under section 6 of the Cinematograph Act, 1952. He further informed that he is taking steps to assure that the film is banned internationally. “Kalvi will also be visiting England in next three days as the censor board of has passed the film. Several organisations of NRIs, which are functioning against the distortion of history, have been approached. He will be visited the US of America post that,” informed Mahipal Singh Makarana, president, Rajput Karni Sena.The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, took strong exception to statements made by persons holding high offices against the film “Padmavati”, saying the remarks were tantamount to pre-judging the movie which is yet to be certified by the Censor Board. A bench headed by Chief Justice dismissed the fresh petition that had sought an order to restrain the producers of the movie from releasing it abroad.
