Mumbai, Nov 2 (IANS) His stay on "Bigg Boss 6" has not been as controversial inside the house as it has been outside. Cartoonist Aseem Trivedi's journey on the reality show came to an end Friday night, following his eviction and a recent agitation outside the office of the Colours channel.

His entry on the show raised many eyebrows. He had even stated that his motive was to use the platform to spread a word about his message against corruption.

Even before he stepped into the "Bigg Boss 6" house with 14 others, he was sure he would not provide any entertainment on the show. And he kept to his words.

He maintained a quiet demeanour. But Republican Party of India (RPI) activists were ruffled by his presence.

Activists of the Ramdas Athawale-led RPI recently pelted stones at the office of Colors TV channel here, demanding Trivedi's eviction from the show.

In the past, Trivedi grabbed media attention due to his controversial cartoons on Indian emblems and the constitution during Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement in Mumbai in December 2011. He was arrested on sedition charges two months ago, but was released on bail after a stay of three days in jail.

However on Oct 12, the Maharashtra government dropped sedition charges against Aseem.

On "Bigg Boss 6" this week, two contestants were due to be shown the door, out of four nominated candidates - Gulab Gang leader Sampat Lal, model Karishma Kotak, hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani and Trivedi.

Karishma left the show after her father passed away earlier this week, and Trivedi is said to have received the lowest votes from the audience. However, it would be no surprise if his ouster is a result of pressure on Colors officials from the RPI.
