Written by: Staff

Bangalore, July 3 (UNI) The Karnataka Government will consider framing a 'cultural policy' to address the interests of theatre artistes and drama companies in distress, Medical Education Minister V S Acharya informed the Legislative Council today.

Replying to an issue raised by Congress members Umashree and Dr L Hanumanthaiah under Rule 330 regarding the local authorities not allowing Sangameshwar Drama Company to conduct shows at Savadathi in Belgaum district, he said he would summon a detailed report on the incident.

The Congress members said the theatre companies, once popular in the State, were facing the threat of extinction and the attitude of officials towards them was deplorable.

Intervening, Leader of the Opposition H K Patil demanded the withdrawal of the reply given by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on the issue and urged the Chair to constitute a House Committee to inquire into the matter.

Cutting across party lines, all members demanded that the Minister withdraw the reply given by the Chief Minister, to which the Minister obliged.
