TN Congress launches TV channel

November 19, 2007

CHENNAI: The Congress party has apparently joined the “channel war,” in Tamil Nadu to rival the DMK, AIADMK, PMK and some other parties by launching a Tamil TV channel called “Mega TV”.

A press release by the channel, which will go on air tomorrow, claimed that it is the first ever TV channel launched by the Congress party. It was formally launched yesterday by Congress president Sonia Gandhi at the AICC session in New Delhi.

Though claimed to be a party channel, party sources said it is mainly sponsored by former Union Minister and senior state congress leader K V Thangabalu.

The entertainment-cum-news channel is expected to compete with the newly established Kalaignar TV, started last month by the DMK and Jaya TV of the opposition AIADMK headed by Jayalalithaa.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and the ruling DMK supremo M Karunanidhi, in a surprise move, launched the Kalaignar TV (named after the title he carries along with his name) even though Sun TV, owned by former Union Telecommunications Minister Dayanidhi Maran’s family, was widely believed to have the DMK’s support.

The PMK too has its own channel with its founder-leader S Ramadoss promoting “Makkal TV”. The channel has plans to carry a serial on the life of forest brigand Veerappan.

Another political party Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) also enjoys the support of another channel called Tamizhan TV.
