The censors have called for major cuts in the movie, including all references to Punjab. Udta Punjab deals with the drug menace in the state.

The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also slammed the Akhilesh Yadav government for the Mathura violence which left 29 persons, including two policemen, dead last week.

She blamed the Samajwadi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party for the incident.

Mayawati said if her party took power in the state, she will ensure that all land grabbers were jailed.
