Nagaland Governor and Governor in-charge of Manipur, PB Acharya, has called upon the media to contribute to nation building by focusing on the development aspects of the non-privileged sections of society. 

Acharya said this while addressing the inaugural programme of the Dakshina Kannada District Journalists’ Meet organised by the District Working Journalists’ Association at the Town Hall in Mangaluru on July 1, 219. 
Stating that the media was an indivisible part of society, Acharya said that the media should motivate people to create a stronger nation. He also advised the media not to sensationalise incidents. The whole approach by the media of sensationalising should be shunned, he added.   
Media expert Ishwara Daithota, who presided over the programme, opined that after the nation opened up to liberalisation, Indian media underwent tremendous change. “Ethical and unethical practices in media need a clear-cut definition in the current scenario. Journalists should commit the blunder of taking people for granted. People have always been very mature,” he reminded. 
Dakshina Kannada District Working Journalists’ Association (DKDWJA) president Srinivas Nayak Indaje gave the keynote address.
On the occasion, a souvenir ‘Samachara’ was also released during the programme. Computers contributed by Mangaluru Special Economic Zone to Government Higher Primary School in Kutlur, Belthangady, were symbolically handed over to the school authorities. An exhibition of books, photographs, paintings and cartoons were held at the venue. 
Mangaluru South MLA, D Vedavyas Kamath; Mangaluru North MLA, Dr Y Bharat Shetty; Superintendent of Police, BM Laxmi Prasad; Mangaluru Press Club president Annu Mangaluru and Patrika Bhavan Trust president Anand Shetty were also present at the programme.
