Songam Vashum from Manipur working in DD News, Delhi and one Sakal Bhatt jointly received the best anchor award.

In her speech, Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Ambika Soni said that the Doordarshan and DD News were still popular among the masses despite the advent of a plethora of other channels.

She credited the entire team of Doordarshan for the success.

Ambika Soni along with Prasar Bharati chairperson Mrinal Pandey gave awards in about 32 categories.

While the Best Doordarshan Kendra award went to Hyderabad, the best telefilm award went to Eti Shaponave Pam Khedi of Guwahati Kendra.

Till date, Imphal Doordarshan Kendra bagged eight DD National awards.

Awardees of Imphal Doordarshan Kendra stated that there were acute shortage of equipments in DDK, Imphal.

There was no sufficient cameras, camera batteries, cassettes and proper lighting system in the Kendra.

Law and order was also another problem in the production of programmes of the Kendra.

Inspite of all these odds DDK, Imphal had been winning the prestigious national awards continuously.

This was not the achievement of the staff concern and the Kendra only but also also a proud achievement of Manipur.

People of Manipur and the State Government needed to support DDK,Imphal in the public interest, they added.

The ceremony was opened with blowing conch by 10 conch artistes of a Manipuri cultural group based in Delhi.

They blowed the conch to make an unpleasant sound, just like a donkey brays, distorting the beautiful tune of Manipuri Moibung.

The Manipuri Gopis who were the attendants in the award distribution wore white potloi dress.
