Govt ensures free flow of information
SHERPUR : Agriculture Minister Begum Matia Chowdhury today said the Awami League (AL) led government has established the right to free flow of information as it did not make any partiality while giving license to private television channel.
“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina gave permission to private television channels at first after she assumed office. She did not make any partiality in giving permission to those channels,” Matia said while addressing at a function of award giving and distribution of warm cloths among poor but meritorious primary school students at Nakla upazila in the district.
The minister said AL government gave media license to even those who do not support Awami League and they also broadcast reports against the party.
“But we are not unhappy as we never consider contestant and critics as our enemies. Those who make critics about us, they help us rectify our setbacks,” she said.
Deputy Commissioner Dr AM Parvez Rahim, Superintendant of Police (SP) Rafiqul Hasan Goni and Additional SP Salauddin Sikdar were present on the occasion.
