Manish Tewari promises FM radio in Ludhiana

Ludhiana, Apr 6 : Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari has said that a Frequency Modulation (FM) radio station will soon be opened here.

On Friday evening, Tewari told reporters that for the installation of the FM Radio Station, two acres of land will be required.

He appealed to the local Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and the industrialists to arrange for the land so that the proposal may be processed further.

Tewari said that the auction of 839 FM Radio Stations in 294 cities of the country will be completed within the next six months, adding that Ludhiana should have an FM Radio Station soon.

The Minister said that the opening of FM Radio Station here would not only provide information and entertainment to the local people, but also create a lot of employment opportunities for the local youths.

Earlier, a delegation of the Hosiery Industries and the Knitwear Club of Ludhiana, honoured Tewari for having facilitated abolition of excise duty on certain items of hosiery, which they said would not only benefit Ludhiana-based hosiery units but all similar units across the entire country.

The Knitwear Club office bearers including Darshan Dawar, Vinod Thapar, Narinder Miglani and Harish Kairpal presented a memorandum to Tewari on the remaining demands of the industry.

Accepting the memorandum, he assured the delegation that the demands raised in the memorandum will be taken up for favourable consideration with the concerned ministry.

Tewari pointed out that due to wrong economic policies of the state government, Punjab lags far behind the other states of the country. He said that only a dynamic leadership can restore the state to the path of progress.

In the felicitation function, senior leaders including Pawan Dewan, Malkit Singh Dakha, MLA Surinder Dawar and others were also present.
