Censor Board Office in Hyderabad has often been making it to the headlines in recent times. The Board is now back in news and this time again for a wrong reason. A few upset members of the Board have filed a complaint in Delhi against A Dhanalakshmi, the regional officer of the AP Censor Board.
Reports suggest that along with a local MP, the members have recently met Ambika Soni, Minister for Information and Broadcasting, and submitted a memorandum, which includes a list of accusations against Dhanalakshmi. It is reported that corruption is one among the main charges against her. It is also stated that she is not a native Telugu speaker. So she is unfit to censor Telugu movies.
Vidya Sagar is one of the members of the Censor Board, who met Ambika Soni. The member says that regional officer Dhanalakshmi is acting against the rules and she indulges in favouritism, when big films are submitted for censorship. He adds that his team brought everything to notice of Ambika, who has promised them to take necessary action.
