Hyderabad/Chandigarh, 24 March 2023: The Indian Journalists Union (IJU) has welcomed the initiative of the Chhattisgarh government in bringing a statute for the protection of journalists. In a statement issued on Friday IJU President K. Sreenivas Reddy and Secretary General Balwinder Singh Jammu thanked the government headed by the Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel for passing 'Chhattisgarh Mediapersons Protection Bill 2023' in the State Assembly on March 22.
The IJU leaders said they are of the opinion that this bill is more progressive than the one enacted by Maharashtra. The bill not only provides protection to journalists but ensures protection to properties of media persons and media institutions. At a time when journalist fraternity has become more vulnerable with increasing attacks and killings by anti social elements this bill is a welcome move, they averred. The IJU leaders made an appeal to all state governments to take a leaf out of the book of Chhattisgarh and bring laws to ensure protection of journalists whose work s vital for the sustenance of democracy.
