ALL BJP-RUN STATES ARE GOING TO MAKE TAX-FREE TO AKSHAY KUMAR’s FILM ‘TOILET : EK PREM KATHA’ :

Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie based on Narendra Modi ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign has garnered the much-deserved popularity among fans and several political parties. ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ talks about the importance of hygienic sanitation requirements in rural areas and how remote villages must start practising installation of toilets in their homes.  With a view to promoting appropriate sanitation practices around the country, ‘Toilet-Ek Prem Katha’ will be made tax-free in all the BJP-run states. Narendra Modi even tweeted his elation towards the Akshay Kumar project which is not just considered as another Bollywood movie but is being called a movement in itself.  A source close to the development informed a leading media portal, ” The Government has decided to implement an entertainment tax exemption in all BJP-run states. ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ is not merely a film, but also a tool for social reform. And, this film deserves to be seen by all. Therefore, it deserves to be made tax free. ”  The movie not only talks about sanitary practices but also highlights the factor on women’s self-esteem being at stake when they have to defecate in the open. On June 16, Rajasthan’s Zaffar Hussein, a CPI (ML) member and activist, was allegedly beaten to death by civic officials after he objected to them taking photographs of women defecating in the open, which made the entire issue get propagated in the media and the public eye.  The Times  of  India : 21st.
