Speaking at an interaction meet organised at the VJF Press Club on Sunday under the aegis of Vizag Journalists’ Forum, Mr. Rao said that there had been major changes in journalism. “Journalists should be honest and sincere. They must not express their personal opinions while reporting,” said Mr. Rao, adding that the academy had started camps and the participants would be taught about the ethics of the profession.
VJF president Gantla Srinubabu said that despite paying ₹1,200, journalists were not getting any benefits from health cards. The chairman was urged to work on the provision of houses to deserving journalists.
