Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said that digitisation of cable operating system will be complete on time.

“Digitisation of cable operating system in Dhaka and Chattogram will be over by November 1 this year,” he said while addressing a press conference at the Secretariat in the capital.

Hasan, also the joint general secretary of Awami League, said that the decision on digitizing cable operating system was taken in consultation with all concerned.

“As per the discussion, clean feed policy was set to be implemented on October 1 and digitizing cable operating system by November 1,” he said. He said that the government has been incurring thousands of cores of revenue loss due to absence of digital cable operating system.

Talking about the comments of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir that an uprising like in 1990 is approaching, Hasan said people have been experienced what BNP has done in the last 12 years.
