TV channel slammed for cutting off live telecast

Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of Defence, slammed national television channel Doordarshan over airing an advertisement by cutting off the live telecast of the annual Tyagaraja Aradhana event in the channel, on Saturday. Angered by the ad, she tweeted calling the act as ‘thoughtless’ and ‘insensitive’.
