Press Club of Assam (PCA) condemns Mahua Moitra’s derogatory remarks against media

N.J Thakuria, Guwahati: Joining the chorus of condemnations against the Bengal’s fiery politician Mahua Moitra’s derogatory  remark ‘dui poyshar press’ in a recent event, the Press Club of Assam (PCA) came out with a statement expressing serious concern over the development. The registered press club also extended its supports to Press Club Kolkata for their demand to withdraw her comment and apologise.

Mentionable is that the Trinamool Congress Parliamentarian from Krishnanagar in West Bengal made the statement of ‘two paisa-worth media’ during a party meeting in Nadia locality. Ms Moitra  claimed that the media was not invited to the program. However a few reporters were present there as they were invited by a dissident faction of the ruling party. Later she aggressively asked party workers to ‘remove’ the reporters.

The issue was taken strongly by the prestigious press club in Kolkata and said in a statement that it was deeply concerned  about it as ‘in a democratic set up, the importance of journalism and the respect it commands is known to all’. None has the right to insult a media person, the press club authority condemns the MP’s comment and expresses hope that she would  withdraw it immediately and tender an apology, added the statement.

“TMC supremo and State chief minister Mamata Banerjee habitually use harsh words against the journalists who criticize her government in Kolkata,” said a statement issued by PCA president Kaila’s Sarma, working president Nava Thakuria and general secretary Hiren Chandra Kalita adding that the Indian media would continue playing its role which may not be favorable to politicians in power always.
