Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that the film ‘The Kerala Story’ will be given tax exemption.
The Chief Minister tweeted about this in Hindi on Tuesday. Reacting to the UP government’s decision, Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak said, “It is a good decision to make ‘The Kerala Story’ tax free. I want people of Uttar Pradesh to see this film and understand how our sisters suffered. He said that we will also go and watch the movie. People of West Bengal also said that they cannot accept the ban on the film.
