FTII Row: Supreme Court Refuses to Intervene

The FTII controversy is getting more complex with each passing day. Supreme Court recently declined to entertain a public interest litigation seeking the court's intervention on the stalemate over the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the Chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India at Pune.

The advocate for the petitioner Vineet Dhanda argued that the reputed institute is paralysed by a students' strike and the government is not doing anything to find a solution.

The petitioner wanted the top court to direct the Maharashtra government to provide security to the students who want to attend the classes.

The Supreme Court dismissed the petition.

Classes at the premier film institute have been suspended for about three months now, as the students protest the appointment of small-time TV actor and BJP member Gajendra Chauhan as Chairman.
