ITANAGAR, July 25 – The Arunachal Pradesh government has decided to install CCTV cameras in all media establishments of the State to instill confidence among the working journalists.
The media fraternity represented by the Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalists (APUWJ) and Arunachal Press Club (APC) had on July 20 met Chief Minister Nabam Tuki and expressed their concern over the security of working journalists.
They had also sought fast- tracking of all pending cases related to assault, manhandling and threats to mediapersons and media houses in the past.
Assuring cooperation and immediate steps, Tuki issued specific directions to concerned authorities to fulfil the demands placed by APUWJ and APC in a bid to instill confidence amongst the working journalists, which was shaken out of proportion by the assassination bid on Tongam Rina, Associate Editor of The Arunachal Times on July 15 last.
Political Secretary to the CM, Bamang Tago, today visited all the media houses based in the capital complex along with experts and technicians to survey and finalise installation of CCTV cameras, official sources informed. – PTI
