Manipur media fraternity protest, no news publication on 6th August 2015


Press release, 5 Aug, 2015

“ The media fraternity in Manipur regret to announce non publication of daily news and electronic media on 6th Aug  2015 due to the intense nature of bandh called by Student Wing of JCILPS. The decision was arrived after a meeting of Editors and members of AMWJU.  The media fraternity made a fervent appeal and understand the free movements of all media concerned to report the events. The crucial decision was arrived after considering the fact that many workers of press including Editors, Sub Editors, reporters, DTP, Machinemen, platemakers, distributors, circulation personnel and other related workers could not reach the press . Apart from this, reporters and cameramen could not gather news owing to same reason. We take this opportunity once again to appeal to all public to allow free passage to media related personnel. A meeting will be held tomorrow at the Press Club to asses the situation of the following day of the bandh. We appeal all our readers and viewers to bear with us.”
