Doordarshan most credible news communicator: Venkaiah Naidu

Public broadcaster Doordarshan celebrated its 57th Foundation Day recently. The event was commemorated with a special function at Doordarshan Bhawan in New Delhi. Speaking on the occasion, Union Information & Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu congratulated the viewers and staff on having traversed such a long journey. The minister added that “there was a long journey” waiting ahead.

Hailing the public broadcaster’s popularity, Naidu lauded DD for reaching out to the remotest corners of the country. “Doordarshan is the most credible news communicator in the country,” he said. 

He mentioned that he always advised media organisations to “keep away from sensationalism” and “be mirror to truth”. Highlighting the ills plaguing the modern news media, he asserted that Doordarshan had retained its popularity despite not indulging in obscenity, vulgarity and sensationalism.

Naidu further opined that Doordarshan raised important issues which were socio-economic and political in nature. “Doordarshan communicates the development agenda before the country,” he said.

The minister concluded by stressing on upholding social harmony and unity. He wished that viewers would continue showering their love on Doordarshan and it would grow bigger in terms of popularity.
