The Government is ready to consider telecast of daily aartis and other programmes at Shirdi Sai Baba temple on Doordarshan National Channel, said Union Minister of state for Information & Broadcasting S Jagatrakshakan while on a visit to Shirdi.
But he said the initiative must come from the Shri Saibaba Sansthan. ‘ If we receive a proposal from the Sansthan , we will consider broadcasting the Aartis over All India Radio FM channels as well’, he told a questioner.
The Minister stated that 150 FM channels and 21 TV centers would be opened this year. He added that the government was planning to set up a Broadcasting Authority of India to control over the mushrooming TV channels.
