"The state government is committed to pass the Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Bill in the upcoming Winter Session in Nagpur," Chavan said after inaugurating the statewide conference on ordinance against superstition and black magic in Mumbai.

Chavan said that the government has also decided to appoint vigilance officers in the state for smooth implementation of the Bill.

 "We have held talks with various people including those from the political parties. Some of them have extended their support, while some are still against it," he said.
    
The chief minister said that the government has also registered cases against some people who have violated the Ordinance, which was promulgated after the assassination of an anti-superstition crusader in August this year.
