TV channel gets notice over gurdwara poll campaign telecast








New Delhi, Jan 27 (IANS) The government has issued notice to PTC News channel for violation of rules by telecasting campaigning of candidates for the Delhi gurdwara polls even after campaigning officially ended, an official source said Sunday.

The notice was issued by the information and broadcasting ministry.

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) polls were held Sunday and the campaigning ended Jan 25. The channel telecast campaigning by candidates Jan 26.

"The channel violated the model code by telecasting the campaigning the whole day. This was in violation of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 and Rules," an official source told IANS.

"PTC News has been asked to reply to the notice in three days," the official added.

The DSGMC polls were held to elect a 46-member house that would manage the Sikh shrines as well as a number of educational and health institutions in the national capital.

This is the second most important Sikh body in the country after the Amritsar-based Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
