Said Zee Media Corp Ltd executive director & CEO regional channels Jagdeesh Chandra: “In the present scenario, where other news channel from all the languages are busy discussing the national capital priorities, there will be one channel which will discuss the state’s news affairs which can influence the center. Why do states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Jharkhand and Assam not set agendas in Delhi? The answer to these questions lie in zee Hindustan, because we believe that states make the nation. This picture will be the main focus of our special program 'राजधानी से राजधानी तक', which will be aired seven days a week at 7pm. Not just eight stories, but our special program will focus on 80 stories making it our agenda, Zee Hindustan will become voice of the nation. No TRP games. For this channel, every gram panchayat will be a TRP centre. We promise the country sacchhi khabar and acchhi khabar."
