Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said the Narendra Modi government must resolve the ongoing unrest at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).

"The central government must resolve the prevailing unrest situation at #FTII Pune. They must take students and teachers into confidence. Political purpose should not stand in the way, institutions are above everything," she tweeted.

"Since I was associated with student movements in the past, I respect student movement. I support their genuine cause always," she added.

Five FTII students were arrested in Pune for illegal confinement after they `gheraoed` the institute`s director Prashant Pathrabe.

The students have been protesting for over two months, demanding the removal of the facility`s newly-appointed chairman Gajendra Chauhan.
