Mizoram CM: Pension Scheme for Scribes in offing


Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has said his government is taking several steps to promote and assist journalists in the state, and will soon introduce a pension scheme for working scribes.

Hailing journalists for their role in shaping public opinion, he said they have an important responsibility to promote and safeguard the reputation of Mizoram.

“Our government gives priority to the welfare of journalists and would soon introduce a pension scheme to benefit them. It is currently under process,” Zoramthanga said at an event to mark the golden jubilee of the Mizoram Journalists’ Association (MJA).

The former rebel leader turned politician also said that journalists play an important role in showing the right path to the government.

He urged the scribes to publish only authentic news and focus on constructive journalism in order to educate the people because misuse of mass media can give rise to hatred among neighbourhoods, villages and countries.

Governor Hari Babu Kambhampati also congratulated the 193-member MJA for completing 50 years.

“The MJA continues to deliver balanced local and national news at a time when news and comments are challenged, which in turn makes community leaders and members evaluate and reassess their positions,” he said.
