Mediapersons to protest on March 24

A decision in this regard was taken at an emergency meeting of the Confederation of newpapers and news agencies employees organisations (CNNAEO) here.

“Journalists and non-journalists employees of all newspapers and news agencies will hold a massive demonstration a day after the martyr day of Saheed Bhagat Singh,” CNNAEO General Secretary M S Yadav said. “We demand the government to immediately notify the Majithia wageboard’s recommendations as scribes are facing hardship in view of exorbitant price rise,” said Yadav.

He said if the government did not awake to the scribes’ problem, mediapersons will be forced to take up the issue with voters of the five states going to the polls next month.
