The state government has said that it is working on a new legislation to ensure rehabilitation of girls in dance bars, besides incorporating stringent rules to “prevent obscenity in the name of orchestra and dance”.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, “The state government is contemplating to move a suitable legislation in the Legislative Assembly on a ban on dance bars.”
Post the recent Supreme Court order, the state has decided to take the executive and legislative route to enforce the decision, which has had the support of all political parties.
“The state cannot permit the obscenity it has witnessed in the past in the dance bars. We will approach the Supreme Court with an alternative proposal,” said Mr Fadnavis.
