Replying to a matter raised by a member on the sting operation shown by a private TV channel on Monday on MPs allegedly sub-letting their quarters on rent to earn money, Information and Broadcasting Minister PR Dasmunsi said "government will decide on issuing a show cause notice to the channel soon."
