Manipur scribes to boycott development news

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 13, 2009

Imphal, Oct 12 (PTI) Manipur journalists have decided not to publish any development-related news of the state government till action is taken against policemen, who allegedly harassed two mediapersons.

The decision was taken by the All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU) during an emergency meeting last evening, its spokesman said today.

He said two journalists who were returning home on Saturday night were detained by some policemen at Shamu Makhong area in Imphal market complex who abused them saying “scribes are agents of militant outfits”.

“This is too much,” the spokesman said adding that there should be an “overall clean up in Manipur police department”.

He said the AMWJU would boycott all development-related news till its demand for action against the guilty is met.
