Marbaita assumes office as Film Development Board chief
Dharmendra Marbaita 'Pappu' has assumed responsibilities as chief of the Film Development Board, two days after filmmakers and artistes opposed to his appointment called off their protests.
The filmmakers had been staging protests demanding that Marbaita's appointment be scrapped, until they reached an agreement with the Ministry of Information and Communications on taking immediate steps to guarantee the autonomy of the film industry.
At a welcome programme at the board, Marbait said he is committed to addressing the concerns of the stakeholders of the industry. Nepalnews.com
