AIPF Assam chapter urges for media restrain

Guwahati: Assam chapter of All India Patriotic Forum (AIPF) has expressed serious concern over an unhealthy media debates by some journalists relating to the forthcoming elections of Guwahati Press Club (GPC), a pioneer pressmen’s organization in northeast India and urged them to exercise restrain while reporting an event confined to a club election.

Mentionable is that the outgoing secretary of GPC, who is a member of AIPF, has been targeted by a section of media outlets as the club polls were not held for many years. But when there was a full-fledged executive committee, only one person (read secretary) cannot be made accountable for the delay. The general members of GPC too could have been pro-active in this respect.

AIPF argues that the over exposure of a club election in the public space could damage the image & integrity of media to many extents and nobody would prefer that in a democratic country like India. It also expressed hope that the club would soon have a new executive committee to lead the organisation from the front.
