Just like other issues raging between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the newly formed states, now sources say that the next big issue is that of Doordarshan as to who will gain control of it.
This department holds a lot of significance in government establishments. Even as this was getting resolved, now suddenly there has been controversy regarding which DD channel would telecast Independence day celebrations for two states. But sources say that this has been resolved.
The decision has reportedly been taken that the Independence Day celebrations in Andhra Pradesh will be broadcast on DD Bharati, while that of the Telangana state will be telecast on DD Saptagiri. Since there has been only one Doordarshan Kendra for the two new states even after state bifurcation, this has resulted in a row over live telecast of the Independence Day programmes. Now that it is resolved, everyone is breathing easy.
