Congress party likely to launch a national TV channel

The National Congress party is seriously considering the idea of launching a national TV channel to reach out the masses.
The announcement was made by Senior Congress Leader and former Union Minister, AK Antony in New Delhi, at an event. He stated that discussions are on to convert Jaihind TV to a national channel.

The minister said, “Despite being the oldest democratic force, Congress is lagging behind when it comes to new age communication systems and is not able to catch the limelight in comparison to other parties.”

Antony added, “We are not able to counter false propaganda at a time when people no longer cast their vote just by looking at a party’s symbol.”

The Jaihind TV was launched in August, 2007 at the hands of Sonia Gandhi. The channel is owned and operated by Bharat Broadcasting Network, a subsidiary of Jaihind Communications. VM Sudheeran, President of Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee is the President of Jaihind TV.
