DD's 24-hour northeast channel launch deferred

Doordarshan's launch of the 24-hour northeast channel has been deferred and will now take place on December 27.

The channel was earlier to be launched on Saturday but in view of Christmas celebrations this was postponed, Information & Broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj, who will be inaugurating the channel at Guwahati, said on Friday.

Chief ministers of all seven states and Sikkim have been invited she said, adding that the channel runs for nine-and-a-half hours at present.

Swaraj said emphasis would be laid on local and regional items on the channel, which is aimed at giving people of the remote areas better access to DD.
