EMFA slams Jorhat DC order

The Electronic Media Forum Assam (EMFA) has expressed serious concern over the Jorhat district magistrate’s recent order preventing media persons from entering into the DC office without his prior permission. The forum commented that the Jorhat deputy commissioner Solanki Vishal Vasant has behaved like a feudal lord disregarding the spirit of the Indian constitution.

The forum has however taken notes that some touts pretending to be scribes are allegedly making nuisance in Jorhat DC office and urged the local journalists to help the authority to identity those touts and book them under the respective laws.

Finally, the EMFA has appealed to the State chief minister Tarun Gogoi, also in charge of home portfolio, to take necessary initiatives to withdraw the order of the Jorhat district magistrate against the media persons on duty at the Earliest.
