Recently, the BJP also assured the Delhi chief electoral officer (CEO) that only pre-authorised content will air on NaMo TV and it has submitted the channel's content for certification.
The promoters submitted the compliance report a day after the EC wrote to the Delhi CEO stating that since NaMo TV is BJP-sponsored and without prior certification, all content was to be “removed immediately”.
A senior official at the Delhi CEO’s office said: “We issued directions to the BJP regarding certification on Thursday night itself and have ordered that content be removed from NaMo TV today. The circular is being complied with. The application for certification of future content is under consideration.”
After much speculation, the BJP has only recently admitted that the NaMo App, of which NaMo TV is a part, was run by its IT Cell.
