Speaking as the guest of honour, member of parliament (inner Manipur) Dr. R.K Ranjan Singh suggested that DDK, Imphal should also try to use outside broadcasting (OB) if possible so that different activities of DDK in different parts of the State can be telecasted live from the field itself.
The member of parliament also said that information disseminated by Doordarshan Kendra (DDK) Imphal should reach the people, especially to the youths and also suggested that Manipur Bhavan located in other states should compulsorily subscribe DDK, Imphal and telecast the activities presented by the channel.
DDK has two roles, the first is disseminating information to the public and educating and empowering the youths by giving them a chance to expose their talents when they take part in different activities telecast in DDK, he said.
Speaking as the chief guest of the function, minister of Health and Family Welfare, L. Jayentakumar said that a person who can disseminate the most accurate and latest information to the public is a successful person in the present competitive and informative world.
He also said that DDK should also disseminate information in such a way that people believe and trust any information released by DDK and also urged DDK to compete with other private channels while disseminating information.
Jayenta said, even if DDK is well equipped with modern technologies, there will be no development in the system if the staffs lack determination and if disunity prevails among them. Saying that people in remote areas still lack awareness regarding different government schemes, he also said that media should spread information about such schemes to the people.
While delivering the presidential speech, director, DDK Imphal, Hemanta Naorem also highlighted the history of DDK Imphal till the present day. In his speech, he also said that DDK Imphal stands in the 5th position in the rating of most viewed list among other DDK in the country.
