On Wednesday (September 15), Sa Ra Govindu, the president of Akhila Karnataka Dr Rajkumar Abhimanigala Sangha, announced the news at a press meet. He accused the Centre of meting out step-motherly treatment to Karnataka. In order to protest their decision, the entire Kannada film activities will be closed on October 6.
"We will fight against the injustice being done by the Central Government. If the state releases 9,000 cusecs of water to Tamil Nadu, our people will face acute shortage of water," said Sa Ra Govindu. Meanwhile, the film industry is likely to hold a peaceful dharana on October 5 and it will be participated by artists and technicians.
