FTII students seek Rahul’s interventi­on


NEW DELHI: Students of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) have sought the interventi­on of Congress vicepresid­ent Rahul Gandhi to check the “assault on institutio­ns of higher learning”.

The FTII students are on strike demanding the removal of TV actor Gajendra Chauhan as chairman of the institute.

In a letter to Gandhi, FTII Students Associatio­n president Harishanka­r Nachimuthu said the appointmen­t of Chauhan has raised questions over the process of appointmen­ts in the institute and sought his interventi­on to resolve the “crisis” as he had done in the issue of Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle in IIT-Madras.
