Doordarshan’s DG resigns, leaves national broadcaster without any head


In a surprising development, C Lalrosanga, the interim Director General of Doordarshan has put in his papers even though he had one year left in his service.

News agency reported that Lalrosanga, who was appointed last year to head Doordarshan till a regular DG is chosen, sent his resignation to the Information and Broadcasting ministry citing “personal reasons”.

An I&B ministry official confirmed to PTI that Lalrosanga had resigned. The official added that orders to this effect will soon follow.

The I&B ministry is likely to appoint a regular DG later this month.

Public broadcasters Doordarshan and the All India Radio, have been functioning without regular DGs for over an year now.

Lalrosanga joined North eastern service of All India Radio Shillong, as Director after getting selected by UPSC in 1991. He was as Assistant News Editor (ANE) at AIR, Aizawl.
