The Congress has filed a grievance with the News Broadcasting and Digital Requirements Authority in opposition to Zee News and one in all its anchors for airing a video clip of Rahul Gandhi’s feedback in Kerala with a “distorted and malicious interpretation”, and sought motion in opposition to them.
In a letter to the Authority chairman, Congress communication division head Pawan Khera raised the matter of “unlawful, unethical and malicious” broadcast by Zee News and its anchor Rohit Ranjan, throughout their programme titled “DNA” which was aired on July 1.
“The impugned information broadcast by Zee News had sought to falsely and maliciously counsel that former INC President Rahul Gandhi demonstrated sympathy for the killers of Kanhaiya Lal (tailor killed in Udaipur) by calling them ‘youngsters’ and saying (they) have acted in an irresponsible method,” Mr Khera mentioned.
These feedback of their authentic and proper context, referred to the vandalism of the Congress’ workplace at Wayanad and have been under no circumstances related with the horrifying homicide of Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur, the Congress chief identified.
It have to be famous that solely Zee and its anchor selected to offer the clip this distorted and malicious interpretation. No different information company, channel or newspaper made the identical mistake, he mentioned within the letter dated July 4.
Mr Khera mentioned it was solely after quite a few complaints by the get together and the general public at giant, whereby the “distortion and falsity” of the printed was identified that impugned information broadcast was taken down.
“Nevertheless, the information channel and the printed have clearly and admittedly violated the provisions of (1) the Cable Tv Community Regulation Act, 1995; (2) Cable Tv Community Guidelines, 1994; (3) the Code of Ethics & Broadcasting Requirements,” he mentioned.
Mr Khera sought immediate and acceptable motion be taken in opposition to the information channel and the anchor.
