New Delhi, April 1, 2014: With a new government imminent at the Centre, there have been murmurs in Shastri Bhavan on who the new information and broadcasting ministry will be.

There is of course a concern on who will be the new Prime Minister, especially if the BJP doesn’t cross the 200 seat mark and has to compromise on a PM other than Narendra Modi.


Uday Shankar

Be that as it may, there’s one name that’s turning out to be a consensus if the NDA or Third Front dispensations come to power. And that’s the name of Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India. In fact it is learnt that even the UPA returns to power, he will be the candidate.

A former journalist and Editor, Mr Shankar was head of news at Aaj Tak and later CEO of Star News. Even now, he’s often invited to panel discussions and seminars discussing issues concerning journalism.

Given that he’s fully aware of issues concerning I&B as CEO of Star India and very active on various industry bodies, Mr Shankar may well be the new I&B minister, sources say. For more details on the story, please click here.
