Writ petition against conversion

By M P Garg (Screen):

After preliminary hearing of the writ petition in public interest filed by advocate Naveen Chandra, Chief Justice Anildev Singh and Justice Harbanslal bench ordered for serving ‘show cause’ notices to the State Government, Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC), the Collector, and the Manprakash cinema on issue of converting the Manprakash cinema into a multi-storeyed commercial complex. The Rajasthan High Court order added, “Why not a CBI inquiry into the matter?”.
It may be added that Manprakash Talkies, named after Maharaja Sawai Man Singh, the oldest cinema hall of Rajasthan, which began showing films from May 2, 1935, closed down an year ago, for conversion into a commercial complex, a joint venture of cinema owner Laxmi Chamaria (daughter-in law of late Radha Krishna Chamaria) and Surendra Golcha of the Golcha cinema.
