Chandigarh:Punjab will not allow any movie seeking to promote violence or gangsters in the state, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday asserted in the state Assembly, saying his government would also approach the Censor Board in this regard.

The Chief Minister made the remark on the third day of the ongoing Budget session during a discussion in response to a question raised by Khanna MLA Gurkirat Singh Kotli in the Zero Hour.

Kotli expressed concern over more movies like the recently banned 'Shooter' being in the pipeline for release.

Reiterating his firm commitment to ensuring a safe and secure social environment across the state, Amarinder Singh said nothing would be allowed to disturb Punjab's hard earned peace and communal harmony.

The state government would write to the Censor Board on such movies since the matter comes under its purview, he added.

Earlier this month, Amarinder Singh had ordered a ban on the movie 'Shooter', based on the life and crimes of notorious gangster Sukha Kahlwan.

Responding to another question raised by MLA Parminder Singh Pinky about the involvement of SAD local leader Iqbal Singh Mallah in anti-national activities, the Chief Minister assured that a thorough probe would be conducted and action would be taken as per the law.

Pinky had alleged that Mallah had links with Happy PhD, a Khalistan Liberation Force member who was killed in Pakistan recently.
