No dance bar license renewals for eight weeks:home minister
Kolhapur,apr 14 (UNI) Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil today said the state government will not renew the license of dance bars nor issue fresh ones for about eight weeks.
Talking to reporters here, Mr Patil, who is also the state Home Minister, said although the High Court issued an order lifting the ban on dance bars in the state, it has, however, stayed its implementation for eight weeks to enable the state government to appeal in the Supreme Court.
''The State government will appeal in the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court's order of lifting the ban imposed on dance bars in Maharashtra,'' Mr Patil said.
The State government approved the law banning dance baris strong enough and the same resolution without any intereferance in it will be submitted in the Supreme Court, he added.
In order to strenghten its stance further, the government will seek opinion and sugestions from legal lumunaries and experts during the eight weeks periord to challange the High Court's order in the apex court, the minister said.
