All India Radio does true reporting while TV channels set agenda instead of reporting


Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said, as against true reporting by All India Radio, TV channels set the agenda of the country instead of reporting.

Mr Jaitley said this after releasing a book titled, ‘Mann Ki Baat – A Social Revolution on Radio’ in New Delhi today. Mr Jaitley cited the example of the Indian Air Force attack on terror training camps on Pakistan’s Balakot area and said some ‘compulsive contrarians’ did not check the facts thinking the targeted area is in Jammu and Kashmir. The book is a compendium encompassing 50 editions of the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on All India Radio. Mr Jaitley said, very few political leaders have the ability and power to communicate directly with people in a simple manner.

He said, Mahatma Gandhi used to communicate in very simple language with people which used to have an electrifying effect. He also said, wherever former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee travelled, he used to carry a small transistor along to listen to Radio News.

On the occasion, Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar Vempati spoke about revival of radio through Mann Ki Baat. He said the programme has put radio in the mainstream consciousness of people.
