In the case of the offending programme, which was aired on the 21 st February 2008, Mr Sharma immediately upbraided the caller for the use of inappropriate and unacceptable language on the programme.
The unedited programme was, unfortunately, repeated twice before the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting (ACB) intervened. Mr Sharma explained the circumstances, apologised for the occurrence and undertook to acquire and install the necessary technical equipment to manage such occurrences in the future. The ACB, from the exchange of correspondence with Mr C.N. Sharma, appeared to be satisfied with the explanations and undertakings given and closed the matter by the issuing of a warning to CNS TV Channel 6.
All Guyanese are aware that the PPP/C Administration has been uncomfortable with the popularity and thrust of the "Voice of the People" programme. The early attack and expression of their anger and frustration was the closing down of CNS TV Channel 6 for two days, in 2002. The relentless harassment and attacks continued and, CNS TV Channel 6 was again closed down, in 2005, for one month, while its equipment was unlawfully seized. This current exercise in vindictiveness is, therefore, a continuation of the hounding and vilification of Mr. C.N. Sharma, Proprietor and Managing Director of CNS TV Channel 6. The length of the closure, of CNS TV Channel 6, is calculated to cripple the business of Mr Sharma.

Now a drama is unfolding in which Mr. C.N. Sharma, Proprietor and Managing Director of CNS TV Channel 6, is being asked by the Office of the President, which seems to be selectively exercising the functions that should normally reside in an autonomous National Broadcasting Authority, to give reasons why his license should not be cancelled or suspended, for a programme the station aired, on 21st February 2008.
The PNCR readily understands that, given the live nature of the programme, "Voice of the People", there may be instances of the inadvertent use of intemperate language, but this is to be expected in any society that encourages freedom of expression. When there are such occurrences, these can be dealt with by sensible programme management precautions to ensure conformity with acceptable broadcasting standards.
The Party does not condone the use of strong arm tactics, which seem motivated by self-serving partisan political considerations that appear to be the chosen method of the Government. The PNCR, therefore, views with concern the request by the Head of the presidential Secretariat for a meeting with Mr. Sharma on this issue. The Party anxiously awaits the results of this encounter.
The PNCR is constrained to raise the question as to why Mr. Sharma should be summoned by the Office of the President, after he had been warned by the monitoring authority, the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting (ACB), which, from all reports, appeared to be satisfied with the recognition, by C.N. Sharma, that unfortunate use of intemperate language might have occurred on his programme, which was aired on the 21st February 2008.
The ominous intervention of the Office of the President, in this matter, suggests that further action is contemplated against Mr. C.N. Sharma. The PNCR hopes that good sense will prevail and that CNS TV Channel 6 will not, once again, be subjected to the kind of harassment and punishment that he has suffered at the hands of the Jagdeo PPP/C Administration.
