She clarified about the formation of a council mentioned in point number 6 of the ‘Bill designed to amend and integrate laws related to Public Service Broadcasting’ and laid emphasis that the Communications Ministry should take leadership of the council. 

“We have not yet practiced the public service broadcasting. The bill originated from the National Assembly is in the committee since years. So we have to make it relevant in our context rather than imitating others,” the Minister explained.
