Chennai: Union Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting and Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, L Murugan, has said Doordarshan Podhigai should carry out the work of taking to the public details about the sacrifice and valour of unsung freedom fighters from Tamilnadu.

Murugan, who reviewed the functioning of Podhigai channel in Chennai, said, “we are now celebrating the 75th year of our independence. A lot of freedom fighters were part of the movement and made supreme sacrifice. In a bid to take to the people the sacrifice and valour of unsung freedom fighters from Tamilnadu, Podhigai should produce its news bulletins and programmes.”

Further, since many sectors are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, officials of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting should reach out to the people about the benefits of Central government schemes through television, radio and social media, he added.
