SRS reiterates demand of full-fledged Duggar Channel

JAMMU, Nov 19: Shri Ram Sena (SRS) urged the Central Government to consider the long pending demand of people of Jammu region regarding an exclusive satellite channel in Dogri.

Addressing media persons here today, Rajiv Mahajan, President Shri Ram Sena, J&K termed it fortunate that after an abrogation of Article 370 still the problems of Jammu people remain the same.

 “There is already the Kashir Channel doing its job in Kashmiri and Urdu language in the Valley but there is dire need for providing an exclusive satellite Channel for a very high population spread over vast areas in Jammu region and beyond in PoJ&K. The Dogri language, already in the 8th Schedule of our Indian Constitution, is spoken widely along with Gojri, Pahari and other languages both within and across the Indo-Pak order. It is a challenging task and rightly a litmus test before the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Central Government in Jammu and Kashmir in the present context,” Mahajan said.

 “The rich composite cultural heritage and providing massive developmental thrust in this part of the country can be best served only by an exclusive channel for the people who have suffered injustice and miseries for over seven decades mainly due to unprovoked heavy firings and assault of poisonous anti-India propaganda from across the border. The Satellite Channel will be a befitting tool to answer the false propaganda emanating from the enemy camps, both within and outside,” he added.

Mahajan said that the full-fledged Duggar Channel from Jammu is strongly justified on the grounds that it will meet the cultural & linguistic aspiration of Dogras & other ethnic groups living in Jammu region.

 “It will showcase the diverse culture of this region to the whole of the world showing Jammu as an outstanding example of peaceful co-existence and it will be of crucial strategic importance to counter the false propaganda of our neighbor country for the people living on that side of LOC & LA,” Mahajan added.
