Shiv Sena arm protests against Bindass' Big Switch

The Charmadyog Kamgar Sena (a wing of Shiv Sena) which operates independently held a protest rally against Bindass' Big Switch. According to them the last episode of Big Switch which aired on 14 November showcased a boot polish task. What stimulated their concern was that the rich contestants doing this activity did not project the profession in a good light, which apparently has resulted in hurting the sentiments of the people who polish shoes for a living. The Charmadyog Kamgar Sena met the management of Bindass at the UTV office and the result of the meeting was that Bindass will carry a ticker from the next telecast emphasizing that this is just an activity participants were asked to do on the reality show. It in no way is depictive of the actual work or the people who do it.

Heather Gupta, Channel Head, Bindass states, “We at Bindass are providing people with entertainment, the task in the show is intended to showcase the inhabitants of poorer areas of Mumbai in a very positive light. However if it has still hurt the sentiments of any particular community, then we would like to clarify to people at large that we are a very responsible channel and our intensions are never to hurt sentiments or feelings of any person or community in any manner.”

We tried contacting officials at Shiv Sena Bhavan but they remained unavailable.
