Three times going with resignation letter dated 24th May after new government of Congress I taking over actress Thara of national reputation went to meet Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. She was asked to keep the resignation and told that Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy is not political.
Surprised with such an announcement Thara was in a shock on last Saturday when the fax message came from the government of Karnataka that 'Your position of KCA head has been terminated'.
Thara holding the position for more than one year and eight months rushed with the same 24th May 2013 resignation letter and this time she handed it over to Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah. Known for pun the CM said when no one is coming to give after announcement you are coming time and again to give resignation. On the fax message Thara received she referred it to the Chief Minister. Even the CM was surprised on inquiry that only Thara got this fax but not others. That is because Thara's file was available but not others.
I am not unhappy with the resignation to the Chair Person position of Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy. I would feel happy if the cinema industry person is nominated. In my tenure I have worked with fullest cooperation of industry people.
The main task of yesteryears 175 to 200 Kannada films available in DTH facility to Kannadigas all over the world could not happen. We wanted to start off with 'Bangarada Manushya'. In the district wise we have increased the 'Belli Mandala' that caters to the film needs of people. The final discipline was introduced. More than Rs.1000 payment was made by cheques says Thara.
