Announcing this in an urgent meeting held at Film Chamber premises, KRG said, "Whenever the issue of Cauvery arise the so called Pro Kannada activists operating violence on Tamils and Tamil Cinema. It is idiotic and absolutely ridiculous. To show the Film Chamber's protest against the Kannada activists, I suspended all the members of Kannada film world from the chamber immediately. It is not my individual decision, but unanimously taken with the support of other regional members like Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

There is no need for them in future. Because nobody is depending on them, instead of that the Chamber is doing a lot to them. I hope the Kannadigas would realize the situation and help to recover peace to the Tamils, who are residing and serving for long years in Karnataka," he added
