VHP launches 3G mobile version of VHTV

Chennai: As part of its efforts in reaching out to the Hindu community, VHP today launched here the 3G mobile version of VHTV, its web TV, earlier launched in September.

The new facility along with a high-tech web studio that will enable live telecast of various programmes, was jointly launched by Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi, VHP International president Ashok Singhal and Janata Party president Subamanian Swamy.

On the launch of the mobile version, Singhal said the initiative was aimed at spreading the efforts of the VHP and RSS, as "lot of misinformation was being spread" about the Sangh parivar. "There is a need to show our real nature of work as a lot of misinformation is being spread about VHP and RSS," Singhal said.

Speaking on the newly launched facility, Shyam, the brain behind the initiative, said VHTV, presently available only on the internet platform, had a variety of programmes including temple rituals besides talks by various personalities.

While the service had been extended to 3G mobile phones today, it would be expanded to other phones equipped with internet later, he said.
