This comes a day after the Punjab government formed a cultural commission to check anti-social messages, obscenity, vulgarity, violence and drugs. The panel will be headed by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh himself while Navjot Singh Sidhu will be the vice chairman.
The commission will investigate after a complaint is registered. It also holds the authority to register an FIR against the defaulters, said Sidhu. More members will eventually be a part of the committee, which is expected to start working after two weeks.
Reports said that the panel would also particulary look at regulating obscenity and drug usage shown in songs.
