“Therefore I congratulate all RTM staff because we have succeeded in fighting a national threat,” he said, adding that people had listened and had been willing to work with the government.

At the same meeting, the Director of Broadcasting, Che Roslan Che Daud, urged RTM staff to honour the values of inclusivity, common ground and contentment in carrying out their duties.
