Nellore: Rural MLA K Sridhar Reddy handed over a representation to District Collector R Mutyala Raju here on Friday, requesting him to take action against multiplex theatres in the city as they have been collecting exorbitant prices on foods and beverages from the viewers.
Multiplexes exploiting viewers, alleges MLA
He stated 75 per cent of viewers in these theatres are common people and they were being exploited by multiplex theatres. The cost of eatables are equal to the amount of ticket cost, he stated, alleging that managements of these multiplexes have some arrangement with companies for collecting exorbitant prices from the consumers.
The legislator also mentioned that these multiplex managements have been collecting huge amount for parking fee even though the High Court had directed them not to do so.
