Imphal, Sep 16 (UNI) The All Manipur Working Journalists' Union (AMWJU) observed its 33rd foundation day here today.
K Madhumangol, a retired editor, here was honoured for his long service in the field of journalism.
Youth Affairs Minister N Biren Singh appealed to the media to bring together different sections of society into a single family so that there could be harmony and peace.
He also said the government was always busy in solving economic blockades or bandhs, a regular feature of the state, and hence could not concentrate on developmental works.
He said the media should emphasise more on development as too much of media publicity on crime affect children.
AMWJU president S Hemant said the two media organisations of the state -- AMWJU and Editors' Forum-- have decided to work together under a common platform.
