The Kozhikkode Akashvani radio station has shown its reluctance to broadcast a drama on Veer Savarkar, reports Janmabhumi daily. All India Radio had directed all state units of Akashvani to include drama on Veer Savarkar in the ongoing national drama festival. AIR had given the drama script, which was supposed to be translated to local languages.
Kerala has eight radio stations, and dramas are prepared on a rotation basis. Kozhikkode radio station has informed the Thiruvananthapuram radio station that the drama on Veer Savarkar cannot be broadcasted tomorrow.
According to the report, Kozhikkode radio station master said that the current problem arose because of their employees getting infected with COVID.
At the same time, the stationmaster has the power to transfer the drama to another radio station.
Later AIR clarified that the play will be produced by Thiruvananthapuram station and will be broadcasted on September 30.
