Show cause notice to news channel on Pathankot attack coverage

The Information and Broadcasting ministry is sending a show cause notice to Hindi news channel NDTV India over its coverage of the terrorist attack on Pathankot airbase which “prima facie” violated norms.Sources told PTI that the ministry has decided to issue a show cause notice to the prominent news channel after it observed that sensitive information was broadcast by it even when the operation was still on and two of the terrorists were known to be alive.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”It has come to the ministry’s notice that when the operation was on, the correspondent of the channel gave details and locations of sensitive spots in the airbase.Telecast of such strategically sensitive information could affect the operations and could even cause damage,” a source said.It is learnt that during the telecast, the channel mentioned facilities like the fuel tank etc, which should have in any case been avoided when the operation was still on, officials said.The I&B ministry has repeatedly asked for restraint by TV channels in their reporting of terror attacks especially when the operation is still on, they added.”The ministry has decided to issue a show cause notice to NDTV India,” an official said.Officials said that under the Programming Code, which has to be followed by channels as per the Cable TV Networks (Regulation) Act, live coverage of anti terrorist operations is not allowed.Media coverage in such cases should be restricted to periodic briefing by an officer designated by the government, officials said.Since the channel “prima facie” did not stick to the norms, its explanation has been sought, they added.The January 2 attack on the air base left seven security personnel dead while four terrorists were also killed. Two other terrorists were believed to have died in a fire at a building.

Subramanian Swamy moots temple for Ram Janmabhoomi

Swamy, however, said such protests were real reflections of intolerance. “Those who use the word secular do not understand its meaning. Is this not intolerance towards an Indian thought? As long as they (the protestors) keep their protests peaceful, I don’t care,” he said.

Ojha, however, claimed that he has no connection with the Ahmadabad case and that it is in the domain of CBI. “Llinking with Ahmadabad bribery case, even remotely at any way, may amount to defaming us who are known for impeccable record and work ethics,” he wrote in his response.

Capital’s air quality worse this winter than last year

In its analysis, CSE has said that if half the cars stay off the road in support of the odd-even system, the total load of particulate matter and nitrogen oxide can be halved from the car segment, cutting down on nitrogen oxide, benzene and carbon monoxide emissions. Reiterating the impact of vehicles on air quality, a recent study of the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur showed that in winters, vehicles are second largest emitters of PM 2.5 pollutant after road dust. These pollutants are particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter and get deposited in our respiratory organs and are also known to be carcinogenic, leading to lung cancer.

Delhi’s air quality index shoots up hours before odd even is implemented

DC Jakhwal, scientist at the Air Laboratory, CPCB, had previously told dna that even though collecting exact data on the exact number of cars currently plying in Delhi – their engine quality, fuel grade, degree of usage – is a massive logistical exercise with a number of variables, automobiles do cause the maximum amount of pollution in the air. Delhi does not have the scale of industry that could compete with vehicular pollution to deflect blame.Meanwhile, Anand Vihar, with the dubious honour of one of the most polluted places in the country registered a Pm2.5 reading of 313.92, exceeding the prescribed standard by 213.92, and RK Puram saw PM2.5 concentration of 296.51 and a PM10 concentration of 422.62.PM2.5 and PM10, two measure of particulate matter, have been Delhi’s most prominent pollutants, and accurate readings for these are important to measure how Delhi’s air quality has worsened over the years and take concrete action, according to Jakhwal. The CPCB would soon move to measuring PM1, he added.
