Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has initiated the rerun of the widely popular 1980s ‘Ramayana’ teleserial from Saturday. The apparent idea is to give some much-needed entertainment to people during the nationwide lockdown.
Javadekar tweeted: “Happy to announce that on public demand, we are starting retelecast of ‘Ramayana’ from tomorrow, Saturday, March 28 on DD National. One episode in the morning 9 am to 10 am, another in the evening 9 pm to 10 pm.”
In another tweet, he said: “It is mandatory for all cable operators to show DD channels. In your area if it is not being shown, then raise a complaint with your cable operator. Please tune in to DD National at 9 am and 9 pm to watch ‘Ramayan’ and DD Bharati at 12 noon and 7 pm to watch ‘Mahabharat’ today and everyday. I am watching ‘Ramayana’ , are you?”
