Conflict of interest

Where do you stand on downlinking norms that make it compulsary for sports broadcasters to share their feed with Prasar Bharti?

If you're the information and broadcasting minister, you're likely to be in favour of it.

If you're the president of the All India Football Federation, and find the value of the TV rights you sell being diluted by this, you're likely to be against it.

Think about poor Priyaranjan Dasmunshi, then, who finds himself wearing both hats. Aniruddh Gupta has the details.
