Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan have already banned the film.

The Haryana government on Tuesday decided to ban the screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film Padmavat in the State.

Finance Minister Captain Abhimanya said a decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the State Cabinet that was chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. 

Mr. Khattar had earlier gone on record saying, “Nobody would be allowed to hurt the sentiments of people belonging to a particular community.”

Health Services

Mr. Abhimanyu said to improve health services in the State, the Cabinet has decided to promulgate an ordinance for Adoption of Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010, enacted by the Central Government.

He said that a decision to this effect was necessitated as there was no legislation in the State to regulate and register the clinical establishments in order to ensure minimum standards of facilities and services for providing quality health care.

“The Ordinance will cover the clinical establishments having more than 50 beds. The effective implementation of the Act will ensure that clinical establishments in the State adopt ethical medical practices in treatment and patient care. Effective action can be taken against clinical establishments indulging in fraudulent or unethical practices under the Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010.” he said. 

The cabinet also approved the Haryana State Administrative Tribunal (Procedure) Rules, 2017 to pave the way for the setting up of State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).

“The establishment of SAT will prove advantageous and essential in view of the increasing number of court cases, particularly relating to service matters and disputes of employees,” an official statement said.
