District President of Karni Sena, Anurag Pratap Singh Raghav said, “MC Stan is spreading obscenity among the youth by using profanities in his songs. In view of this, we had already informed the event organisers, hotel management and police-administration that if Stan used indecent language during his presentation in Indore, Karni Sena would kick him.
