Itanagar, Aug 28 : The All India Radio (AIR) is considering to launch a 24-hour news channel on frequency mode (FM) soon in Arunachal Pradesh.

Director General (News), Mohan Chandak informed this while interacting with media persons here yesterday after launching the regional news bulletins in Hindi and English.

Describing the launch of daily news bulletins as a historic moment for AIR, he felt that it should have been made long way back, considering the importance of the role AIR plays in disseminating information to more than 90 per cent of population across the country.

He opined the onus is now on the state to make the ‘historic’ beginning a long lasting success.

''Eighty percent of the bulletins will covered the news of Arunachal Pradesh. Therefore, it is the people of the state will have a huge responsibility to make the mission successful,'' Mr Chandak stated.

The initiative taken by MP Takam Sanjoy way back in 2002 has finally seen light with yesterday’s launch.

Hindi and English news bulletins would be available at 7.45 and 7.50 pm respectively.

It was the effort of the then state IPR Minister Sanjoy in Mukut Mithi government that brought the matter to the state cabinet and accordingly he had taken it up with the Centre, which took seven long years to materialize.

Sanjoy expressed happiness over the launch of daily Hindi and English news bulletins from AIR Itanagar and said this will serve the people of Arunachal by bridging the gap between Itanagar and New Delhi.

''We are going to be benefited a lot with the launching of daily news bulletins. It is going to the doorsteps of people in the far-flung areas,'' the MP said.

Assuring his all supports to the endeavours of All India Radio, he urged upon the concerned authorities to look into the problems concerning adhoc employees of AIR Itanagar.
