The family said that it stands with Shree Rajput Karni Sena and other such national organisations, which want to keep alive the rich and proud history of Rajasthan.

The statement also pointed out that disciplinary action is being taken against the erring officials of the department, which has been set up by the family to take care of shootings and to take necessary permissions in regard to shooting of films and advertisements.

“This department did not provide full information to the royal family relating to the film `Padmavati` and gave permission to shoot it,” the statement said.

Shooting for films, serials and advertisements take place frequently in the different historic palaces belonging to the Jaipur royal family on a regular basis.

The statement further went on to say that the family stands committed to protect the proud history of Rajasthan. Anyone attempting to twist or change the history of Rajasthan will not be tolerated.

On January 27, activists of the Rajput organisation Shree Rajput Karni Sena protested, misbehaved and manhandled the crew of “Padmavati”.

As a mark of respect to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth Anniversary, the Full Court of Rajasthan High Court has unanimously resolved to ban single-use plastic and thermocol products in the court’s premises.

In a circular, the Rajasthan High Court said the state government had imposed a ban on the use of plastic carry bags across the State in 2010 but this has not sufficiently worked on the ground.

The Central Government has recently declared to ban the single-use plastic across the nation from October 2, but without public awareness and commitment, this step may also result in futility, the circular stated.

“As a mark of respect to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth anniversary and in the interest of the institution and public at large, the Full Court has unanimously resolved not to use the banned single-use plastic/thermocol in any manner in the premises of the Rajasthan High Court and High Court guest house both at Jodhpur and Jaipur, as also in the premises of all the subordinate courts, canteens/restaurants in the premises of all the Courts of the State and also during official functions, conferences and any other occasions,” said the Rajasthan High Court in a notification.

This means that the ban will extend to all courts in the state, High Court Guest House at Jaipur and Jodhpur, canteens and restaurants operating inside the premises of Courts as well as official functions, conferences and any other occasion.
