Government Film & TV Institute (GFTI) students, who have been protesting from a long time, demanding a better college curriculum and infrastructure, might get justice as renowned film-maker Girish Kasaravalli joins the protest.
"I was travelling and am back in town. I plan on meeting filmmaker SV Rajendra Singh Babu and discuss how we will take the matter further. I want to ensure that the GFTI students get justice quickly. At an earlier meeting, the Education Minister had promised that he would visit the campus to assess the current situation. I want to be personally present to ensure that he takes note of the situation," Mr. Kasaravalli told Times of India.
He has further added, "I want the students to have a new upgraded syllabus quickly, because it is not fair that this prolongs and they lose an academic year, just because they chose to stand up and voice their rights."
Not only from Girish Kasaravalli but the GFTI students are getting support from students belonging to other arts colleges as well.
Agin Basanth, the President of Students' Council has said, "We plan on holding a protest with other students, GFTI alumni and some prominent voices from the Kannada and other film industries this Saturday. We want everyone to take cognizance of our situation and give us the justice due to us."
