Politicos can't face reality



Members cutting across party lines raised the issue and demanded that the government regulate such shows to “prevent” them from polluting the minds of the people.
Raising the issue during zero hour, Kamal Akhtar from the Samajwadi Party gave an example of a new television programme, Sach ka Samana, where a celebrity is asked to face a polygraph test.

He said the programme anchor asked a female contestant obscene questions — in the presence of her husband — like whether she would have physical contact with another person. When she replied in the negative, the polygraph test proves her was answer wrong, Akhtar said, wondering what impression this would create on her husband.
He said to improve their TRPs, several television channels had been airing “dirty contents” and these programmes should be banned.

As several members sought to speak on the issue, Deputy Chairman of the House Rehman Khan agreed to hold a structural discussion later.
