Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, 15 September, launched Sansad TV, an Indian government television service which will merge the Lok Sabha TV and Rajya Sabha TV channels.
At the launch event of the television channel, which coincided with the International Day of Democracy, Prime Minister Modi emphasised on the importance of democratic values in India.
""Today is International Day of Democracy, launch of 'Sansad TV' becomes more relevant. When it comes to democracy, India's responsibility increases. India is the mother of democracy. For us democracy is not just a constitutional structure, but a spirit, it's 'jeevan dhara.'"" - Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Vice President and Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla jointly launched Sansad TV, which will broadcast programming of the two Houses of Indian Parliament and other public affairs.
"A new beginning is taking place in the form of Sansad TV. Sansad TV will also be available on social media and OTT. It will also be available in application format. This will take it closer to the common Indian," PM Modi was quoted as saying.
