Officials to meet FTII students

This will be the third time that the two sides would sit together in Mumbai after the students and the ministry decided to renew their dialogue.

In the earlier two meetings between the two sides, the ministry delegation was headed by a joint secretary.

The strike at FTII has been on for over hundred days after the name of actor Gajendra Chauhan was announced as the Chiarman of FTII council.

While the students have been demanding Chauhan's removal, the ministry has firmly backed his appointment.
