The government has asked the Ekushey Television (ETV) and Focus Multimedia Company Limited (CSB) to refrain from telecasting any provocative news, documentaries, talk shows and discussions against the government.
In separate orders issued yesterday, the government said it can impose ban or attach conditions on telecasting provocative news, documentaries, talk shows and discussions against the government according to Article 5 of the Emergency Power Rules 2007.
The two electronic media have been telecasting provocative news, documentaries, talk shows and discussions against the government for the last few days, a PID handout said.
“It is urgent to stop this type of activities for public interest and thus the government issued the order as per Article 5 of the Emergency Power Rules 2007,” the PID handout added.
