Of course they did. This is basically all that the Congress (opposition party and former ruling party) does nowadays, oppose everything that is even remotely related the BJP (current ruling party) and since BJP went out of their way to make this concert happen one shouldn't be surprised by this. It still pisses me off though, the way they corrupt things like these with politics. :|
edit: and i just noticed they wrote COLD PLAY
It deserves a thread of its own if you ask me, really well-conducted interview!
