I&B Minister Launches 'DD Assam' Channel Virtually
GUWAHATI: Union Minister of Information & Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar, on August 4, digitally launched “DD Assam,” a 24X7 Assamese satellite channel.
"The launch of 24X7 satellite channel DD Assam is a great gift to the state of Assam, which sends the message of unity in diversity," said Javadekar.
"Assam and North Eastern Region is so full of natural diversity and cultural richness and yet it carries the thread of unity. It is hence necessary that each state has its own Doordarshan channel," he added.
"DD Assam will go a long way in showcasing the rich history of the state. Every region has a rich diversity, Assam also has a lot to say to the people of the state and the country," said the director general of Doordarshan.
"DD Assam will help us to get messages, initiatives and programmes of the government to the grassroots," said Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal thanking PM Modi & I&B Minister for the initiative.
