The AAP today accused the BJP-led Centre of undermining the institutional autonomy of various bodies in the wake of the controversy over of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Censor Board members resigning en masse.

The party alleged the government has been meddling with authority of institutions such as AIIMs, IITs and DU in the recent past.

“The censor board should be allowed to work independently. This government is increasingly being known for its meddling in IITS, AIIMS, DU and now the Censor Board. Somewhere the question arises whether this institution should function with an agenda,” AAP leader Manish Sisodia told reporters.

Nine members, apart from CBFC chairperson Leela Samson, put in their papers protesting alleged government interference.
