Supreme Court has yet again pulled Maharashtra government for not granting license to dance bars and said that t is better for a woman to dance rather than to beg on streets.
The apex court has given directives to the government to issue license to eight bars within two days.
The next hearing will be on Friday. ANI reported that the bench has acknowledged the plea of Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, appearing for Maharashtra, that the state has to ensure that there is no obscenity in dance bars and the modesty of women is protected there.
Further, the court also asked dance bars to adhere to guidelines given by the state.
The Maharashtra cabinet has earlier approved the dance bar bill
which states that a person can face imprisonment or a hefty fine if he touches or throws money at bar dancers.
