If you are planning to visit any nightclub in Chandigarh wearing short skirts then you need to change your plan as Chandigarh administration has recently made provision to ban short skirts in disco with aim to “‘Controlling of Places of Public Amusement”.
It has been said that this decision is taken as disco is consider as the breeding ground for “anti-national element”. This new policy also reduce the bar timing by two hours from 2AM to 12 Mid-night.
This policy implements from 1 April onwards which also include that if any business owner fails to run this then a nodal committee with deputy commissioner as chairman and municipal corporation (MC) commissioner, Chandigarh police SSP, director, health services and excise and taxation commissioner as members have the power to cancel the permission of their business renewal.
The Punjab and Haryana high court had ordered Chandigarh administration to frame a policy to monitor the operations of bars and restaurants of the city.
Do you think it is moral policy?
This kind of policies rather kills the nightlife of Chandigarh and ruin business as well. It is all about your morals; what one find indecent may be innocent for someone else.
I didn’t understand why government not considers that we need to change our thinking rather than changing clothes.
