The Kerala Story Film To Be Tax-Free In UP

New Delhi: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday announced that the film 'The Kerala Story' will be made tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. Adityanath's announcement came a day after Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government banned the film, which revolves around a group of women in Kerala who are forced to convert and join the terror group Islamic State.

"'The Kerala Story' to be made tax free in Uttar Pradesh," Yogi Adityanath said in a tweet in Hindi.

Uttar Pradesh has now become the second Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled state after Madhya Pradesh to give tax-free status to 'The Kerala Story.

Earlier on Saturday, MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had announced that the film will be tax-free in the state, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi credited the movie for bringing out terror conspiracies and used it to attack the Congress during a rally in Karnataka.

"We have already made a law against religious conversion in Madhya Pradesh. Since this film creates awareness, everyone should watch this film. Parents, children and daughters should watch it. That's why the Madhya Pradesh government is giving tax-free status to the movie 'The Kerala Story'," Shivraj Singh Chouhan said.
