In response to multiple reports of sexual harassment of the women working as casual announcers in AIR’s stations Union Minister Maneka Gandhi’s wrote an open letter on Thursday, November 15, to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore asking for immediate investigation of the cases.

She also stated that despite the women complaining to the appropriate authorities, no action has been taken so far.

Previously, such claims were made by television and film industry workers and junior artists, however no substantial actions have taken place.

“I understand that an organisation would have a natural tendency to dismiss a casual woman employee the moment she reports sexual harassment. But this is not good. A responsible organisation must provide justice to each and every woman if she complains of sexual harassment,” she added.
