WB govt to acquire Tara group channels

India Blooms News Service

Kolkata, May 23 (IBNS): The West Bengal Government on Thursday announced that it will temporarily acquire the two Bengali channels-Tara Muzik and Tara News, which were previously owned by the chit fund scam hit Saradha Group.

The channels had to be shut down following the chit fund crisis and the arrest of company's Chairman and Managing Director Sudipta Sen last month.

The announcement was made by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after a meeting in the Writers' Buildings with the employees of the channels, who have appealed for government intervention.

The government said it will bring required legislation in connection with the ownership of the channels. According to reports, the state government will implement new laws following Article 39 A (B) of Constitution.

The government would reportedly decide whether it should convene a special session of the Assembly or promulgate an ordinance since the Assembly was not in session now.

The state government would provide Rs 26 lakh from the Chief Minister's relief fund to run the channels.

The government would, however, not take the liability of the channels which amounted to Rs 6 crore, said the Chief Minister.

Meanwhile, the move has invited severe criticism from the leader of the opposition in State Assembly Surya Kanta Mishra. He said that how can the government acquire the ownership of the two channels.

Following the shut down of the channel, around 177 employees were left jobless. The employees also claimed that they were not paid salaries for three months before they lost their jobs.

Leaving lakhs of depositors in a fix, the company collapsed recently and several media channels, newspapers as well as magazines had to shut down their operations.
