National Press Day observed in Guwahati

The Assam Press Correspondents’ Union has demanded an empowered Media Council of India, which can look after various issues of media persons effectively in the country. The media persons’ organization has asserted that the Press Council of India has slowly lost its relevance as it has no role to play on ensuring financial security to the working journalists. The APCU also raised its voice for a regional office of the media council in Guwahati. The demands were highlighted during a meeting organized on the occasion of the National Press Day.


Organized by the Assam Press Correspondents’ Union at Guwahati Press Club, the significant Day was celebrated with various programes today by the media persons. The celebration started with flag hoisting and culminated with a general meeting in the press club auditorium. A veteran journalist of South Kamrup, Khagen Bayan was also felicitated by the organizers.


Presided over by the APCU president Sobhit Chtri, the meeting was also addressed by senior journalists Bhabesh Baruah, Hiten Mahanta, Ranen K. Goswami, Nava Thakuria with others.
