KOLLAM: Social critic Sukumar Azhikode has said that solving problems between members is the prime duty of an organisation.
He was reacting to queries by mediapersons on the showdown between actor Thilakan and the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA).
Dr. Azhikode said that in Thilakan�s issue, AMMA was trying to impose a military rule of sorts.
�Artistes are independent people and they cannot be subjected to any disciplinary action. It will be like the Sahithya Akademi directing writers not in its good books to stop writing,� he said.
