MLA Demands Sacking of Tainted TV Anchor


Srinagar – MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has expressed his deep anger and anguish over the alleged non-serious attitude shown by Doordarshan authorities towards the incident during which an NC senior leader and Ex MLC was caught red handed in a house boat with a prominent female TV anchor in a compromising position.

“DD authorities should have not only dismissed the said anchor from their channel but also condemned the incident but adding salt to the injuries of the people of Jammu and Kashmir they did not take any action against the said female anchor”, he said in a statement.

“There can be nothing more shameless and immoral than the fact that morally degraded authorities of Doordarshan allowed the said female anchor to carry on the programme ‘Good Morning J&K’ within 12 hours of the incident”, he added.

MLA Langate said that it seems that Doordarshan Srinagar has become a den & base camp of immoral activities where in the name of cultural activities minds of Kashmiri youths are being poisoned with immoral and shameful acts.

MLA Langate demanded stern action against doordarshan authorities and said that common masses have right to know that how the said tv anchor was allowed to host a program after this grave incident.

However, he appreciated role of JK police in acting promptly despite the huge pressure from the political and bureaucratic set up.

Kashmir Observer contacted Director Doordarshan, Shami Shayar, to seek her comment on the MLAs allegations. ” You please come to my office tomorrow, we will discuss the matter here”, she said and dropped the line.

Meanwhile Er Raheed also hailed the action taken by police in the incident during which security personnel of Mr. Taj Mohudin Minister for PHE, Irrigation & FC had manhandled a traffic sub inspector during which he was injured.

He urged JK Police to discharge its duties above political considerations and favoritism if they want to earn respect in the hearts of the Kashmiri people who often have been feeling as if policemen in uniform are treating themselves above the law.

MLA said that the highhandedness shown by the Personal Security Officers (PSOs)of the senior minister have given an idea that how helpless common masses would be feeling before the PSOs and other ‘gundas’ of politicians especially the ministers. He said that Taj Mohiudin cannot run away from the responsibilities by saying that he did not have eyes on his back. Observer News Service
