A Candle light vigil was organised at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on 15th July 2012 by the Facebook group ‘SaveCGM’. This is a group of more than 1 lakh supporters of the TV show ‘Chandragupta Maurya’.
‘Chandragupta Maurya’ was an epic historical show about greatest people of Indian history. The show was basically about ‘Chanakya’ and ‘Chandragupta’ who together built the biggest Indian empire till date.
The day, when Imgaine TV decided to shut down its operations, CGM hasn’t been telecasted since then. This left many CGM fans dejected and disappointed.
Finally, Sony TV agreed to telecast the show, but the Imagine TV owners ‘Turners Broadcasting’ isn’t giving the NOC (E2-80-99) to the Production House, according to the fans and some unit members, which is delaying the telecast.
In view of this, fans held a candle light vigil at the historic Jantar Mantar to draw attention to this cause. Fans demanded that good historical shows like ‘Chandragupta Maurya’, which connect us with India’s History & Culture, must not be shut down.
Many people shouted slogans against ‘Turners Broadcasting’ and demanded the restart of this famous show.
On the other hand, fans thanked Sony Entertainment Television for agreeing to host this show and requested them to sit down with Turners and the Production House Sagar Arts and resolve this impasse at the earliest.
