Law to ban western music, vulgarity: BJP manifesto in Haryana

September 29, 2009 18:20 IST

If the Bharatiya Janata Party comes to power in Haryana assembly polls next month, it will make a law to ban western music and "vulgarity", says the party manifesto. "...Sanskriti key naam par Paschatyein sangeet va bondapan ko kanoon banakar roka jayega" (law will be made to stop western music and vulgarity in the name of culture), says the manifesto in Hindi which was released by senior leaders including Arun Jaitley, Vijay Goel and state BJP president Krishan Pal Gujjar at a press conference in Chandigarh on Tuesday.

Asked to comment if western music will be banned by BJP if it comes to power in the State, Jaitley pointed to Gujjar for reply. And Gujjar said "we are not against western music but we are against vulgarity and sleazy things".

The manifesto of the party, which is fighting on all the 90 assembly seats for the October 13 polls, also mentions that BJP will strive to revive the "ancient and rich Haryanvi culture".
