FNCCI condemns CPN-Maoist ban on Hindi movies
The Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) has condemned the decision of CPN-Maoist to ban the screening of Hindi movies in Nepal.
Issuing a statement on Thursday, FNCCI also said that while the Nepali movies should be promoted and developed in the international market, the CPN-Maoist move of prohibiting movies from other countries will ultimately hamper the growth of Nepali cinema industry.
Such a decision would incur huge losses to cinema hall operators while many other directly or indirectly involved in the business will have to lose earning with the closure of cinema halls, said FNCCI.
Saying that Nepal has opted open economic policy, the apex business body of the country also urged the concerned authorities to be alert to prevent further losses from the CPN-M decision.
The federation has also urged the government to create favourable environment to run movies of all kinds while protecting the domestic cinema industry.
Similarly, the federation has also directed its member associations related to cinema to initiations to resume the screening of Hindi films in Nepali theatres. nepalnews.com
