Mokokchung Press Club (MPC) along with the rest of the nation observed “National Press Day” at Whispering Winds, Mokokchung, with deputy commissioner, Mokokchung, Limawabang Jamir as the special guest on November 16. 

A press release by MPC stated that, during a short session with MPC members, the DC remarked on the importance of the day as through the fourth estate, people come to know various issues in society. 

Terming media as a mirror to bare truth and realities of life, DC however cautioned that sensationalizing issues bring division and create problem in the society. He therefore urged upon MPC to uphold the very vision of the Press Council of India, that journalism should be neutral and fair to all. 

He further encouraged the MPC members to continue striving for the truth and keep working on investigative news and while portraying the truth to avoid hurting anyone. 

Mokokchung Press Club president, Limalenden Longkumer in his presidential address said that since the inception of the MPC in 2008, it has been doing its best to provide fair and unbiased news to the masses.

He also stated that in 2020 in India, about 15 journalists were arrested and two were murdered but the Nagaland press community in general and the members of MPC have not witnessed such unfortunate events. 

He thanked the district administration for keeping law and order firm in the district and said that one should work towards preventing such unfortunate events in the future. Mokokchung Press Club member, Limasenla Jamir chaired the event.
