    This bitch actively overlooked objections to PK and Haider raised by her subordinates, saying that freedom of expression must be upheld at all costs. Now she found problems with MSG and decided to quit. Fvck right off, Vaticunt.

    Leela Samson's father belonged to the Jewish Bene-Israelite community from Pune, and her mother belonged to the Roman Catholic community from Ahmedabad.

    Her father, Vice-Admiral Benjamin Abraham Samson (retd), headed the naval fleet in the 1965 war.

    In 2012, she was accused of financial irregularities in a CAG report. She was also accused of violating legal serving age in government institution.

    Well, she was certainly very biased. She acted quickly and strongly on complaints related to "possible hurting of Catholic sentiments" but she never extended the same courtesy to other religions.

    I am perfectly fine with diverse points of view and opinions, but there should be no hypocrisy. It should be uniform, across the board.

    If this lady had spoken about "freedom of speech" across the board, and rubbished "hurt sentiments" of any religion, it would have been fine. If she had been extra cautious and banned every movie which could probably "hurt religious sentiments" that would be fine too.

    But double-standards and hypocrisy is what rankles. Good that she is out.

    Leela Samson's method: create a controversy just before term expires, submit resignation & emerge a political martyr. Congress debt repaid.

    ps- nda paying the price for allowing her this long! Govt should file fir for her previous wrong doings!

    Her wiki page says during 2011/2012 she was in three institutions 1. Director Kalashetra 2. Sangeet Natak Academy 3. CBFC.

    Is this normal? A person to hold three person simultaneously? Were no separate candidates available?

    The real story is that she was going to retire next week with no chance of reinstatement, hence she played the secular card to show her humble loyalty to the mistress of India. She is making noise for obvious reasons!

    If she was so hurt by the functioning of Censor Board (mind you all members of CB are Con-gress appointees), then why she did not quit 7 months back when BJP came to power?

    Another antic/drama by a power hungry socialite belonging to Maiono's quiver!

    Good riddance indeed!!

    Priyanka Gandhi appointees were trapped into controversies. Like Ashwini Kumar and AP SIngh two CBI directors
    Third is Leela Samson. The writ weilded by Priyanka Gandhi was enormous according to a senior BJP Union Minister
    at the appropriate time BJP might leak a crucial document on Priyanka Gandhi.
    --
    Leela Samson trained Priyanka Gandhi in Bharatanatiyam - and that nearness to Priyanka facilitated Leela
    to get six top positions in ten years of UPA regime. BJP had two Union Ministers of Information and Broadcasting
    Prakash Javdekar and Arun Jaitley. Both did not disturb Leela as she is believed to have lobbyed to stay in position.
    But Leela sprang a surprise by sudden resignation protesting against MSG.Accepting six position does it not
    tantamount to corruption? Who will answer this question? Senior BJP leaders are tight lipped.
