Jammu, 28/March/2023: Jammu and Kashmir Border Area Development Conference (JK_BADC) , a registered organization working for the welfare of people of border areas of J & K has appealed the union ministry of Home Affairs and ministry of Information and Broadcasting to sanction community Radio Stations in border areas of Jammu and Kashmir so that the people of the remote and border areas of J & K have the access to communication and information and they remain connected with the outer world in all weathers.
Dr Shazad Ahmed Malik, Chairman of the BADC and former Vice Chancellor has requested Anurag Thakur , Union Minister of Information, Broadcasting, Youth Affairs & Sports and asked him to sanction community Radio Stations in Border areas of Jammu and Kashmir as it would be very helpful for the people of these remote and far flung areas to remain connected with rest of the country and have a easy mean of communication to raise their voice and also have the real time information about the different government schemes for students, deprived sections of the community, information about weather and opening closing of road due to snow and rain.
In his appeal, Dr Shazad also stated that community Radio station would also provide platform to local youth to present their talent and would be an exposure to their local languages.
The BADC Chairman also made humble submission to the Union government to give special focus to sports activities in border areas of J & K .
