CNS Channel 6 back on the air

Channel 6 was back in operation just after lunch today after broadcaster CN Sharma received an official letter from President Bharrat Jagdeo saying that the suspension has been lifted until December 1.

Sharma told Stabroek News that he received the letter, which had an Office of the President letterhead and which was signed by the president, around 12.10 pm. The short letter stated that the ban has been lifted until December 1 when the suspension will continue.

Sharma said he is still not satisfied as he believes that “we should not have been taken off in the first place”. He said that the candlelight vigil that was started to protest the four-month suspension will continue.

The usual programme with opposition parties will continue shortly.

Jagdeo announced at the PPP rally in Kitty on Sunday that he was temporarily lifting the ban as he did not want the opposition parties to have any excuse for the “resounding defeat” that awaits them at the November 28 polls.
