Now playing

queue for fm licences

RADIO can be a very powerful weapon to reach out to the masses at minimum expense. Prime Minister Narendra Modi understands this and has delivered two talks, “Man Ki Baat”, on the radio. Entrepreneurs have been quick to sense the power of the radio after its sensible use by Modi and are rushing to Shastri Bhawan, which houses the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, to get radio licences at the earliest. The ministry is making a move to issue more and more FM radio licences to spread the reach of the government to the masses. Businessmen running other businesses who have not been able to enter the mainstream media do not want to lose this opportunity. Surprisingly, it has been noticed that business houses who are running Ponzi schemes in the financial sector and siphoned millions of rupees by duping the poor are also applying for FM radio licences. Most of the Ponzi scheme operators are under CBI and Intelligence Bureau scanning. It has to be seen how the fiery and energetic advocate-turned-politician, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Arun Jaitley, keeps a watch and sees to it that no unscrupulous or financial jugglers get licences. Will the Shastri Bhawan officials keep manipulators away?
