'Balika Vadhu' gets clean chit from I&B ministry
Popular TV series Balika Vadhu, which airs on Colors, has received a clean chit from the Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni.

Ministry sources said Soni is expected to write to Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar that the series did not promote or support child marriages. The series, on the other hand, is aimed at educating people against child marriages.

Balika Vadhu had attracted the ire of members of the lower house of Parliament when one member objected to its telecast since child marriages have been banned in the country.

The Minister had said that she would examine the complaint but asked the member concerned to send details.
