The minister said that though he wishes to have a dedicated television channel on environment but such a venture would require huge investment. Meanwhile, the government recently launched a dedicated television channel for farmers called 'DD Kisan' to provide information about best agri-practices.
Stating that media has a big role in creating awareness about envirnoment issues, Javadekar said, "Media has an active role to play in creating awareness about clean India initiative and other issues related to environment."
"One media house can take the cause of waste management, the other media house can take forest issue. There are many issues that each media house can focus on," he added.
