Open Letter to Markanday Katju, Chairperson, Press Council of India: Non-Publication of news on Workers March To Parliament

STATEMENT BY  SOME MEMBERS OF CATALYST STUDY CIRCLE

It is with dismay we, readers from Tamil Nadu, of esteemed English Daily Newspapers (print version) like The Hindu, The Times of India, New Indian Express, Deccan Chronicle etc., want to bring to your notice the lack of coverage of a news item. We have come to know through social networking sites that about 2 Lakh workers ‘March to Parliament’ by 11 central trade unions took place  on 12.12.13 (Video by Malavika VyawahareLabour Rally and Post by Venkat – Two Lakh Workers March to Parliament and March For a Minimum Living Wage – Post by Srinivasan Ramani). This has not been given any coverage on 13.12.13 in Tamil Nadu at least in Chennai based print version Edition.

  1. You lost me when you named the New Indian Express as esteemed. Have you been to their website? Every page, I mean EVERY page, has a stupid picture of their editor or whatever. Total nonsense and hardly esteemable. Even my 15 year old Maruti Esteem is more esteemeous than the New Indian Express. You fellas publish for the sake of publishing, whatever.

    1. Patience dude. The writer is being sarcastic most probably. The newspapers are being accused of a wrong doing of not giving coverage to an event involving 2 lakh people. Any way sometimes being polite sounds more powerful than using expletives, which are any way not to be used, as what you want to convey goes for a toss in the slugfest that ensues.
