Days after the Confederation of Indian Traders (CAIT) issued a letter demanding a ban on Salman Khan’s reality show Bigg Boss 13, BJP MLA from Ghaziabad, Nand Kishore Gujjar has now demanded that the show be taken off air. In a letter addressed to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar, the legislator has alleged that the "show was promoting obscenity and vulgarity and was unfit for family viewing".
"The show is against the cultural ethos of the country and highly objectionable intimate scenes were a part of it. Couples of different communities were being made to become bed partners, which was unacceptable.Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on one hand, is trying to make India regain its lost glory and, on the other, such shows were demeaning the country's culture," he wrote.
He has further demanded that there should be a censor mechanism for content being aired on television in order to prevent such incidents in future. Amit Jani, president of the Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena has also announced that he would not eat any food grain until the Bigg Boss 13 show is stopped.

"I will survive on fruits and vegetable until the government takes steps to ban the show which is promoting vulgarity and misleading the youth. Showing young couples sharing bed on national television is not acceptable and I am shocked that the RSS which claims to be our moral police, has not even taken note of this," he said.
The Brahmin Mahasabha has submitted a memorandum in this regard to the Ghaziabad district magistrate and sought a ban on the reality show with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, this time, the Bigg Boss house has been moved from Lonavala to Filmcity in suburban Mumbai. Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel will be seen as the malkin of the house spicing up the housemates’ lives. As far as the contestants this season are concerned, we will see the likes of Siddharth Shukla, Rashami Desai, Koena Mitra, Arti Singh, Paras Chhabra, and others.
