ISLAMABAD (APP) - In a bid to deprive its citizens of information, the Indian government was not allowing TV cable operators to show any Pakistani TV channels and asked the cable distributors to follow the instructions in letter and spirit. Meanwhile, the Indian information and broadcasting ministry is also planning to establish high-frequency transmitters and towers in the border areas to stop transmission of Pakistani Programmes, The Asian Age reported. The Indian government has earmarked Rs 1 billion for the implementation of the project, it added. The govt was also contemplating hiring retired army engineers and former police officials on contract for the maintenance and security of these towers. It is also pertinent to mention here that in a recent meeting held in New Delhi under Asian media Information and Communication Centre, Javed Jabbar had severely criticized the Indian approach for keeping its people unaware of what its neighbours think of it and vice-versa.
