Electronic media denied of getting eletion pass

For the ensuing election all of the correspondents or reporters of Barpeta were asked to submit their reliable documents at Barpeta District Administration for permission card/ entry card for the election by the election commission of India. Accordingly a total of 23 reporters of both electronic and print media had already submitted their documents in proper time. But surprisingly, only 19 authority card has been issued and among those the stringer and cameraman of a Channel named DY-365 has been dropped. The stringer of DY-365 complained that it was injustice that they were deprived of getting the pass card. He again added that their channel has been continuously criticising the present govt as well as some of the faults of election of India. The Complainer wanted to say that there might be conspiracy under this.

It has been noticed that another electronic media is propagating for the state government's performances falsely and the audience is critical of such telecast. The duty of media is to put the clear picture before the people.
