dogs becoming lap dogs of Government

2019-08-24

New Delhi, August 24 : The National Alliance of Journalists (NAJ) and the Delhi Union of Journalists(DUJ), join the Press Association members, President Jaishanker Gupta and general secretary C.K.Naik and some other bodies  against the unilateral decision of the Chairman of  Press Council of India, Justice C.K.Prasad filing a writ petition in the Supreme Court seeking permission to intervene in a writ filed by Kashmir Times executive editor Anuradha Bhasin. Ms.Bhasin ‘s petition seeks an end on restrictions on communication amenities in Jammu & Kashmir which was creating hurdles in the way of the smooth functioning of media.

While condemning the Press Council Chairman ‘of tomtoming’ the government’s interest and acting as its B team, we call for action by unions concerned.

In a statement today, the National Alliance of Journalists(NAJ) and DUJ President, S K Pande and after consultation with DUJ  general secretary Sujata Madhok, has called for the widest possible unity to ensure Watch Dogs do not become Lap Dogs of the government and other international interests with their own agenda of balkanization of the country .
