Private FM channels to broadcast AIR News from today

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Private FM channels will be able to broadcast All India Radio News from today. Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore will launch the sharing of news at a function in New Delhi this afternoon.

Talking to AIR, Colonel Rathore said, it is positive and welcome step as radio is the biggest mass medium for citizens.

The Minister said, the radio has gained popularity again due to ‘Mann Ki Baat’ Programme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Colonel Rathore said, AIR FM covers 50 per cent of population in the country and private FM channels are being given opportunities in different cities and towns.

Colonel Rathore took on the opposition saying that from 2009 to 2014, the then UPA Government took 56 crore square centimeters of space in Newspapers for advertisements and spent a huge amount on publicity.

He said, they even displayed the photographs of UPA chairperson, who was not even a constitutional authority.
