Chairman Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Absar Alam has urged all the Chief Ministers to hold meetings with cable TV networks, Satellite TV channels and FM channels to stop airing programmes bearing Indian contents.
In a meeting with Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Sana Ullah Zehri on Tuesday, he handed over a letter regarding a campaign launched last year against Indian contents being aired by various channels.
Chairman PEMRA said that if the issue is not resolved through dialogues, PEMRA will launch crackdown against illegal Indian Direct-to-Home channels across the country from 15th of the next month.
He said letters in this regard have also been sent to all other Chief Ministers to have meaningful talks with all cable operators and channels.
