BANGALORE, NOV. 23. The Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, has volunteered to hold discussions with the leaders of the Kannada film industry in an effort to prevent the industry from going ahead with its agitation plan on Thursday. Speaking to presspersons here today, he said, "I appeal to actor Rajkumar to refrain from holding the agitation. The Government is also concerned with the problems faced by the film industry. Sensitive issues such as the problems of the industry should be sorted out through negotiations. It should, however, be made clear that issues such as a moratorium on non-Kannada films were difficult as it is a constitutional matter."
Our Bangalore Special Correspondent reports:
Meanwhile, the Janata Dal (United) has urged the film industry to resolve the crisis over exhibition of non-Kannada films in the State through a dialogue with the film chambers of the South Indian States.
