Information and Broadcasting minister M Venkaiah Naidu today asked the Rajasthan government to ensure proper monitoring of cable TV so that no objectionable content or illegal channel is broadcast, especially in the border districts. Naidu also asked the state government to depute one officer in every district so that committees formed to monitor TV content at the district level can function effectively.
The minister also emphasised on the need to publicise the public welfare programmes of the Centre and state government through TV and radio. He said this at a meeting held at the chief minister’s office here, in which officials of Doordarshan, All India Radio (AIR) and Press Information Bureau (PIB) were also present.
Naidu also suggested that the AIR’s local FM channel should air headlines in Rajasthani language also. Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje said that coordination will be improved so that information about government schemes and programmes can reach more and more people.
She added that community radio can play an important role in spreading awareness and promote harmony.
