The new national Hindi news channel was launched by Anurag Thakur, the federal minister for information, broadcasting, and sports and youth affairs. The slogan of the channel is “Vision of new India!”
At the launch event on Sunday, Thakur spoke and wished the team luck. He congratulated Dr Jagdeesh Chandra and the entire Bharat24 team on their new endeavour. Thakur is confident that Bharat24 would carry out this job with the utmost seriousness since the media is the fourth pillar of democracy and should serve as a conduit between the public and the government.

“We assure the minister that Bharat24 will reflect the aspirations of the youth, the multi-polarity of emerging India, and would function as a bridge between our audience and the government,” said Dr Jagdeesh Chandra, CEO and editor-in-chief of Bharat24.
Kumar said that together, the Indian union government, several state governments, multilateral organisations, and India’s overseas allies have made significant progress toward creating the New India. According to Bharat 24, a strong link between governmental institutions, public policy, and the general populace is urgently needed.
Additionally, Jagyasi added that Bharat24 would create a standard for news reporting and branding with bureaus in every state. Being able to open with so many reliable sponsors on the channel’s first day of operation and continue to get stronger and better over time is something to be proud of, he added.
