Kher refuses to quit as censor board chief

Bride And Prejudice Movie StillsThe central government Wednesday asked Anupam Kher to resign as head of the Central Board of Film Certification but the seasoned film actor has reportedly refused to do so, saying it was an insult.

Kher was appointed by the former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.

Though Kher maintained diplomatic silence on the move by the Manmohan Singh government, sources said he would prefer the government to sack him instead. The actor is said to be of the view that stepping down voluntarily would question his credibility.

When asked for reaction to the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance's (UPA) move, Kher only said he had not received any communication from the information and broadcasting ministry.

"I have not received any official communication still. I will be addressing a press conference in this regard in New Delhi tomorrow," Kher told reporters in Mumbai Wednesday.

The UPA government's directive is being perceived as a result of pressure from the Left parties which want the centre to get rid of appointments made by the NDA government in key organisations.

The Left parties, which support the government from outside, have sent a list of appointees to various ministries that they want replaced, sources added.
