Governor ND Tiwari stress on promoting basic moral values

Hyderabad, August 30, 2007

Andhra Pradesh Governor ND Tiwari said that mass media should make people focus more on the basic moral values on which the society and civilization have thrived. Speaking after the inauguration of NTV, a round the clock Telugu News Channel and Bhakti TV, a devotional channel on Thursday, the Governor said the influence of modernity has driven away people from the path of spiritualism.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy pointed out that there should be a difference between news and views. To increase the the viewership, and readership, he said, channels and newspapers are resorting to manufacturing news. He asked to present the news straight without any bias.

National Vice-President of the Bharateeya Janatha Party (BJP) M Venkaiah Naidu said that the media started presenting views in the guise of news. He said that it is the need of the hour to evolve a code of conduct by the media. CPI (M) General Secretary BV Raghavulu felt NTV would work towards fighting corruption and exposing loopholes in the governance fearlessly. Almost, all party leaders presented on the occasion.

The telugu telly tube is all set to hot up with the launch of these two channels. In fact, NTV directly competes with other similar news channels such as tje TV9, ETV2 and Gemini News while Bhakti TV competes with Samskruthi. Bhakti TV focusses on devotion, spirtuality, religion and moral values. Both telugu news and current affairs channels as well as devotional and spirituality channels are set to see few more entrants in the near future. TV5, another telugu channel that would beam telugu news and current affairs is gearing up to start its operations soon.
