"BTV to be aired in India soon"
Entertainment Live: Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today informed that Bangladesh Television (BTV) would be aired in India soon.
“The final agreement to air BTV in India has been completed and a technical team will visit New Delhi from June 25 to 27 in this regard,” he told reporters at a press conference at the meeting room of his secretariat office here.
Besides, Dr Hasan said, another agreement has been done between Bangladesh Betar and Prasar Bharati to broadcast betar programmes in India. “Now the programmes of Bangladesh Betar will be aired in India soon,” he added.
Replying to a question, Dr Hasan said there is no bar from Bangladesh government to air the country’s private channels in India. But it is not possible as the Indian cable operators are demanding high fees to air private TV channels, he added.
He said, “We got independence under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971 and now the country has graduated to a developing nation from LDC for the dynamic leadership of Bangabandhu’s daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”
