The state government has sent the notice again, he said. If they do not reply within the stipulated time, it will be directed to Union ministry of Information and Broadcasting, he added.Besides, the news channels in the state have also been issued notice for airing an incident of a minister without blurring the images of the minister and the other person, involved.
