Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party is all set to launch its news channel on YouTube. The channel will contain all forms of news concerning citizens of the country. Keeping with the party’s agenda, highlighting corruption will be the main priority of the channel.
Talking to exchange4media, Aam Aadmi Party’s Manish Sisodia, who will be at the helm of the channel, said, “Lots of things are happening in the country, however, television news channels are bound by time durations and other elements and hence, are unable to show some content. Therefore, we decided to launch an online news channel, which will deal with the issues of normal citizens of the country.”
He further clarified, “We are not planning on any formal launch or promotion of this channel since the citizens are well aware of the party’s name, and demand will bring in the viewers.”
Sisodia also refuted reports that the Aam Aadmi Party was launching the TV news channel and maintained, “It’s a rumour. We don’t have any such plans for now or for later on.”
The name of the channel has not been decided yet, but it will be something that highlights the relationship with citizens.
The online news channel will be led by Sisodia, who had earlier worked with Zee News, and senior journalists Shazia Ilmi and Abhinandan. The news content will be uploaded twice or thrice a week and will be very focused on certain topics.
