Patriotic forum urges for media restrain in Assam

Assam chapter of All India Patriotic Forum (AIPF) has expressed serious concern over an unhealthy media debates by some journalists relating to the forthcoming elections of Guwahati Press Club (GPC), a pioneer pressmen’s organization in northeast India and urged them to exercise restrain while reporting an event confined to a club election.

Mentionable is that the outgoing secretary of GPC, who is a member of AIPF, has been targeted by a section of media outlets as the club polls were not held for many years. But when there was a full-fledged executive committee, only one person (read secretary) cannot be made accountable for the delay. The general members of GPC too could have been pro-active in this respect.

AIPF Assam chapter argues that the over exposure of a club election in the public space could damage the image & integrity of media to many extents. It also expressed hope that the club would soon have a new executive committee to lead the organisation from the front.
