Media One license not renewed due to national security reasons, no need to inform the channel management about it, repeats Central government

media

NEW DELHI: The Centre has repeated the stand that they do not need to inform the management of Media One channel about the telecast ban. The Central Government has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court regarding the channel ban. The Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has reiterated that the license of Media One has not been renewed due to national security concerns. There is no need to inform the opposing party regarding reasons and details of this.

The director of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting said that further details can be submitted if the court demands. The affidavit states that the Central Government has a special right under the National Security Act to withhold information related to national security. The High Court had earlier upheld the action of the Central Government in channel ban. On March 15, the Supreme Court stayed the High Court judgement. A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud dismissed the Centre's argument that the channel was a threat to national security.
