Home minister of Maharashtra, RR Patil's definition of 'good' women and 'bad' women, has denied the latter group their fundamental right to work
The home minister of Maharashtra, R.R. Patil, isn’t very good at his job. Worse, he has twice now successfully prevented thousands of people from doing theirs. On 12 June Patil convinced the Maharashtra state legislature to amend an existing law, so that dance performances would be banned in every class of bar and restaurant in the state. With this, he plugged a loophole that the Supreme Court quoted in its decision to strike down the ban on dance bars last July—for discriminating against classes of venues.
