BJP leader threatens to create Hindi broadcasts on Kannada FM radio

Bengaluru: On Monday, top BJP leader and former Karnataka minister Suresh Kumar questioned the decision to broadcast programs in Hindi and other languages ​​on Kannada Rainbow channel 101.3 FM.

In his letter to Additional Managing Director (South) Ramakanth, the BJP leader said that through his attempts he had tarnished the image of the union government which has no role in the decision on the broadcast programs on the Kannada Rainbow 101.3 FM channel. “If he does not reverse his decision, the ‘Ramakanth return’ movement will become stronger,” he warned.

Akashvani Rainbow 101.3 FM channel is the symbol of Bangalore city culture. It has transcended the limitation of business operations and is known for its entertainment programs. He captured the hearts of Kannada people through various programs, Suresh Kumar said.

In the recent past, after Ramakanth’s takeover, entertainment programs have been sidelined and neglect of the local language is clearly visible. Suresh Kumar feared Ramakanth’s move would prove detrimental to the local talent pool. He also questioned the logic behind airing other language programs from other channels on Kannada FM.

Is it a way of respecting the country’s culture to make decisions about broadcasting news in other languages ​​on Kannada FM? What is the need to broadcast news and programs in Hindi and other languages ​​on Kannada channel? He wondered.

He further asked whether the people of Kannada should respect his decision (Ramakanth) to broadcast programs in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and other languages? The hallmark of FM Akashvani Rainbow 101.3 was interaction with the audience. Priority is now given to recorded programs, is this a deliberate desire to distance the public from the channel? asked Suresh Kumar.
