I hope they consider same as do here and stop taking public funds to run that organisation. They can crowd fund. I hope many well wishers can donate to keep the function running.
Running of DD National is not to compete with any other channel. It's to make people aware about different issues in our society and spreading knowledge. Do you even know how much impact television would have made in women empowerment.
Where BBC, DW, France24, Al Jazeera etc. carries perspective value of their countries in International market. DD carries peanuts.
DD is already working on it with DD India and we are democratic country where our minister like Dr S Jaishankar are enough to show mirror to other country on its own state run news channel.
In future I hope government auctions off broadcast of Republic Day and Independence Day parades.
We celebrate this to spread our culture which showcases our unity in diversity. Also, this is celebration and we don't celebrate festivals to earn money but they give us joy. BTW last time how much you earn from celebration? Although you have spent. right?
I didn't say anything about Ullu platform. Why would you bring that vulgar platform? If I have to compare Doordarshan with any other company I would do it with bomb streamer like CNN+ not Ullu.
You said ten other competition
They are working on something where there are ten other competition.
Actual in our country INDIA we don't have ten mainstream streaming platform including Ullu too. And, your comparison is again wrong CNN+ was online News Streaming platform whereas DD is coming up with OTT. CNN+ was shutdown soon after its launch.
Now just imagine a OTT platform without any vulgarity.
