Looks like, the mania of ‘Dirty Picture’ has caught the Indian Government as Ministry of Rural Development has decided to rope in sexy starlet vidya balan to feature in their ” Clean Picture”, i.e.: educational campaigns of Sanitation ‘Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan.. She will work for two years as the Brand Ambassador for this Ministry offering her support and services in development of Drinking Water and Sanitation in rural areas. That’s a good fortune for Vidya to reach more into public with a Clean Picture.

 

‘This will be a clean picture. What could be a matter of more pride than doing a dirty picture on screen and a clean picture off it? This is the real me. This duty will work a lot because this is a National Movement. I take this as an opportunity to do a Clean Picture off the screen after doing Dirty Picture on the screen.’

said vidya balan gracing 59th National Film Awards 2011 function in New Delhi recently. Minister Jairam Ramesh informed that Vidya will appear in promotion of construction and use of Toilets in rural areas and will be involved into restructuring of Total Sanitation through ‘Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan.’

Mamata, Pawar, Ramesh, Sibal & Selja in que to start channels

After West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressed her desire to start her very own television channel and newspaper to ward off the negative publicity that she has been garnering, it looks like there are many other politicians in the fray who wants to utilize the media, the Didi-way.

Similar requests have emerged from several UPA ministers to the government expressing their keenness to start TV channels to make the common man aware of the “ministries’ achievements” and “people friendly policies”. Mamata was the first among the lot who wanted a dedicated channel to propagate her and her party’s views.

Among the ministers who want themselves and their ministries featured on TV are agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, Jairam Ramesh (rural development), Kapil Sibal (HRD) and culture minister Kumari Selja. Sources have been quoted as saying that the ministries were of the view that dedicated channels were required considering the specialised nature of their domains.

The proposals are, however, stuck at the proposal level before the planning commission. The commission is taking it easy for the time being since the cost of setting up each channel would cost close to Rs 200 crore each.
