WEATHER FORECAST ON ZEE-TV
ONLY FOR KARACHI AND ISLAMABAD!
Dear Shri Balial ji: Namaskar:
We have received a lot of complaints from our members that ZEE TV News at the end of news everyday at 06:30 p.m. gives weather forecast for five important cities of the world. According to ZEE TV, those five important cities of the world are: New York, London, Paris, Karachi and Islamabad.
We understand the importance of New York, London and Paris. But we fail to understand on what basis you have decided to include Karachi and Islamabad , both Pakistani cities in the important cities of the world, and chosen to exclude New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and other Indian cities.
This is outrageous and has caused disgust and revulsion in our mind. We do not know whether Mr. Subhash Chandra ji is aware of this discrepancy or not. We also do not know whether it is a deliberately designed mischief or an inadvertent error. Whatever the reason for this, one thing is very clear to us that some anti-Indian elements have penetrated in ZEE TV actuated by a malicious desire to misuse ZEE TV and degrade India.
We will appreciate it very much if you could take immediate action to rectify this error.
