Emfa ridicules Papon’s diktat for media

Electronic Media Forum Assam (Emfa) expresses shock & dismay at the audacity of a popular Assamese personality to diktat terms for the electronic media. The forum also asks singer Angarag Papon Mahanta to keep away from such unwanted activities in future.

It may be mentioned that Papon, while performing at a Bihu function in Pathshala last night, engaged in debates with the news channels’ camera persons (on duty) and indirectly scolded them for focusing over an unwanted incident that took place among the audience.

Honoured with various national and international awards, Papon also addressed the media persons in negative terms and asked them to do coverage according to his wishes.

“Angarag Mahanta should devote more time & energy for his creations and set a larger destination to achieve, rather than indulging in unnecessary debates with the media persons. He should not forget that millions of audience becomes accessible for him because of our people cover the program live in television channels,” said a statement issued by the Emfa.

It also added that the media persons must not be targeted by anybody (whatever his stature) for his/her selfish interest and if the concerned individual can not appreciate the media, he/she at least should not dishonor the ‘working men in the medium’.
