Telangana CM about Journalists

Hyderabad, April 03: Telangana Iconic leader and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has said the central government has a responsibility to protect press freedom without violating the basic civil rights, here on Today.

He found fault with the Centre's decision to cancel the accreditation of journalists accused of filing fake news items.

In a statement on Tuesday, he said that there were already laws to deal with those writing fake and baseless news.

"By stating that accreditation of journalists will be cancelled under the pretext of curbing fake news is now sending disturbing signals among thousands of journalists in the country," the Chief Minister said.
