Ouch! It looks like they were definitely not happy.

@wblmom : yeah they were not happy as the government cut the funds off for festivals people have been celebrating since ages.

Can't the raise money for the festivals on their own. That would be more productive than rioting.

@cube: Yeah you are right but the fund for festivals has been provided by the government since ages and the sudden cut off triggered anger in the citizens.
