We have always maintained that our business is a professionally managed entity and it’s unfair to penalize a well-run, successful business and its employees. We also strongly believe that not allowing us to participate the phase 3 auctions is an attack on media freedom."

The Phase III auctions are expected to be held on July 27, 2015. However, there is a chance that this might be delayed if a resolution is not found this week.
