According to reports, the 'Valmiki' organizations affiliated to a political party, protested against the anchor Shah Rukh Khan of the top TV show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', the show itself and Star Television, in Hoshiarpur (Punjab) on Tuesday.
The protests were against some reported remarks by SRK against Valmiki ji (where he merely repeated what the contestant had said). The protestors also burnt an effigy of the actor.
As is known, the assembly elections are round the corner in Punjab and the Bahujan Samaj Party has a reasonable presence in the state and the 'Valmiki' population is their traditional vote bank and every little opportunity is being exploited by other political parties to win them over.
