NaMo TV barred from airing political content by EC

The Election Commission has barred NaMo TV from broadasting any political content.

In a letter to Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, the poll panel states,” It has been confirmed by you that there has not been any pre-certification of the content being displayed on NaMo TV/Content TV, by the MCMC Committee in your office. Any political publicity content, being displayed on electronic media without requisite certification from competent authority should be removed immediately and any political content shall only be permitted strictly in accordance with EC instructions in this regard.”

The Aam Aadmi Party had complained to the EC, saying though a party can have its own channel, can permission be granted for its launch ‘even after the model code of conduct is enforced’.
