The ‘Aarakshan’ team has been denied the right to hold seminars the in Lucknow by Uttar Pradesh government.

The movie ‘Aarakshan’ which is based on caste based reservations in the country had been previously denied the permission to hold seminars in Lucknow University by the board of Lucknow University.

Later they had booked the Indira Gandhi auditorium to hold the seminars but now even that has been denied.

Understandably the director, Prakash Jha is mighty miffed with the government. Jha has now decided to directly appeal to the Chief Minister Mayawati and has said that he would be more than pleased to have a special screening for her.

Will his request be granted has to be seen.
