The Jaipur Literature Festival on Saturday released a statement by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi, in which he confirmed that he won’t be attending the festival. “Will not be attending JLF this year and must say will miss sharing great moments with literature and poetry lovers. I am doing this so that the dignity of the event does not get compromised or discomfort caused either to the organisers, fellow writers or the attendees. And also so that the lovers of literature get to focus on creativity and not controversy,” the statement quoted Joshi.
