An assistant director at the Doordarshan Kendra Chennai was suspended with immediate effect.

The action came in the wake of complaints that the speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a hackathon event at the IIT Research Park in the city was not telecast live on DD Podhigai a day earlier.

In the order, Prasar Bharati Chief Executive Officer Shashi Shekhar Vempati said that Assistant Director (Programme) R. Vasumathi was being placed under suspension under Rule 10(1) of the Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965. He did not assign any reason for the action except for stating that disciplinary proceedings were being contemplated against her.

Modi delivered a speech at the Chennai airport before heading to the IIT Research Park to address the hackathon and subsequently deliver the 56th convocation address at IIT Madras. DD Podhigai had telecast his speech at the airport and IIT Madras live but the address to the hackathon was telecast only briefly.
