Prasar Bharti chief resigns

Noted scientist and Chairman Prasar Bharti Board, U R Rao has sent in his resignation to I&B Minister, Sushma Swaraj. In his letter of resignation, Rao sited personal reasons for quitting Prasar Bharti. But according to sources in the Prasar Bharti Corporation the decision to tender resignation was to avoid conflict of interest as Rao is a consultant to a number of private companies including a broadcast company.

Rao was made Chairman in October last after he was elevated from the post of part time member of the Prasar Bharti Board. His term is due to expire in November next year. Rao has asked the government to accept his resignation with effect from September 15th. If Rao resignation is accepted by the I&B Minister Sushma Swaraj, he is likely to be replaced by B G Verghese, who is the senior most member of the Prasar Bharti Board.
