Producer K Manju has quit his position as the Vice President of the distributor sector. He has officially forwarded his resignation letter to the KFCC (Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce). Sources say that the producer is very upset with the single handed decision taken by Basanth Kumar Patil in accepting the resignation of producer Rockline Venkatesh.
Rockline Venkatesh was unhappy with Basanth Kumar Patil's functioning. So the producer had tendered his resignation at the KFCC on 6th April. But the KFCC President had accepted his letter without consulting other members of the Executive Committee. Sources claim that K Manju was very upset with this decision and decided to quit his post.
The members of the Executive Committee are also not happy with the working style of Basanth Kumar Patil from a long time. In 2010, 20 members had rebelled against him by tendering their resignation. But Rebel star Ambareesh had intervened and calmed down the situation.
However, the issue of Rockline Venkatesh's resignation letter has now irked the Executive Committee members again. They are said to be deeply hurt by the arbitrary decision taken by the KFCC President. They are said to be planning to quit their membership soon and protest against Basanth Kumar Patil.
