Publish news about good works on priority basis

Bhopal. Governor Anandiben Patel called upon the young journalists that they should give space to news about good works on priority along with sensational news items in the newspapers. Newspapers are an important medium to bring positive development works being undertaken in the society and the country before the world. The Governor said this today while inaugurating a national symposium at the Madhavrao Sapre Memorial Newspaper Museum and Research Institute. The Governor visited the library and reviewed the magazines, granths and newspapers available there.

She said that today women are moving ahead in every field. They are working jointly on improving their future. The Governor stressed on the need to bring quality in journalism. She said that if need arises, news about people’s welfare must be given prominence instead of giving place to news about the Governor or the Chief Minister. She said that it is the responsibility of the newspapers to take the government’s public welfare schemes to the people.
