Coimbatore: Fifty Hindu Makkal Katchi
workers were arrested today when they tried to enter a reputed
hotel here in protest against its proposed `obscene` dance
show, part of programmes got up for New Year celebrations on
December 31.

The hotel had announced the programme agenda, included a
dance, which the activists claimed were obscene and sought
cancellation of such `westernised culture`, police said.

HMK workers raised slogans against the hotel management
and tried to enter it, but were prevented by police, who
arrested all of them.
