DD News launches programme on Right to Information

DD News is launching a 30-minute weekly programme on Right to Information (RTI), titled ‘Jaanne Ka Haq’ (Right to Know) from July 22, 2006. The 30-minute anchor-based show will be telecast every Saturday from 10.30 am to 11.00 am.

“The purpose of the programme is to bring some of the best examples of how the common man has used the power of RTI. Our team will be roaming around the country and capture a success story from each state every week,” said Pankaj Shankar, Consulting Editor, DD News.

The show will be anchored by one of the lead names of the industry, Saleha Wasim. Apart from the success stories, the programme will also educate the common masses about their rights under RTI. The show will be an audience-based one with Live discussions, phone-ins and studio discussion.

“Three-fourth of the show will be Live, while one-fourth will be packaged,” Shankar added.

The programme is scheduled to be on air for 52 episodes initially, which may be extended later.
