SC orders to lift ban on ABN !!
After wait of 500 days, ABN TV channel will be soon beamed into Telangana homes. The Supreme Court today directed Centre, Telangana government and District Collectors to immediately take measures to resume telecast of ABN TV channel.
It may be noted that cable operators in Telangana have barred TV9 and ABN for allegedly denigrating Telangana legislators. Both the channels waged a legal battle to resume broadcast.
The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has asked the MSOs (Multiple system operators) to resume the broadcast of TV9 channel on October 29, 2014.
ABN has moved the supreme court as MSOs stopped beaming the channel.
A three-member SC judge today said that TDSAT verdict on TV 9 plea would also be applicable for ABN. IJU leader Devulapally Amar hailed the judgement and urged the government to immediately take measures to resume broadcast of ABN channel.
