Prasar Bharti on Monday is likely to take a final call on whether a probe is required on the row surrounding the interview of Bharatiya Janata Party`s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, by Doordarshan.
BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday called public broadcaster Prasar Bharti a "Prachar Bharti" of the Congress for perpetually projecting the latter for past ten years and completely wiping out BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from its coverage.
Amid the raging controversy over state broadcaster Doordarshan editing out portions of his interview before telecast, BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the development reminded him of the Emergency.
The CBI will soon file a case
against suspended Prasar Bharti CEO B S Lalli in connection
with alleged irregularities in the award of broadcasting
rights of Commonwealth Games reportedly resulting in a loss.
BJP on Tuesday demanded early
prosecution of Prasar Bharti officials found guilty by the
Shunglu Committee of allegedly causing a loss of several crore
rupees in awarding Commonwealth Games broadcasting rights.
The SC Friday directed that all day-to-day work of the public broadcaster would be handled jointly by a three-member team consisting of its CEO and Members (Finance and Personnel) in accordance with a Delhi High Court order.
