Former union minister, Prof. Saifuddin Soz, today said that he has shot a letter to the union minister Information and Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar—urging him to restore morning Kashmiri news bulletin immediately.
“While lodging a complaint with the Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar about the bureaucratic attitude of his Ministry, I informed the Minister that the Prasar Bharti has withdrawn the Kashmiri News Bulletin from its list of morning Transmission of News,” Soz, in a statement issued here, said.
“In my letter to him, I brought to his notice that the general Kashmiris have become extremely angry with this move by the Ministry and the authorities of Prasar Bharti because it was nearly three decades that Sanskrit Bulletin was followed by Kashmiri News Bulletin,” he said, adding “I urged the Minister to withdraw the order of withdrawing Kashmiri News Bulletin.”
Meanwhile, Soz talked to Shashi S. Vempati, Chairman, Prasar Bharti—urging him to restore the Kashmiri Bulletin, immediately.
While replying, he has assured me that he would personally take interest in the restoration of Kashmiri News Bulletin in their daily transmission of News Bulletins of the All India Radio.”
