Press Release
 
West Bengal : Attempt to muzzle the voice of the press .
 
NUJ(INDIA) expresses serious concern
 
New Delhi June 4, 2020: The National Union of Journalists (India) believes that in a vast
democracy like India, where the freedom of expression is fortified within it&
39;s Constitution, the
freedom of the press to report without fear and favour should be properly protected. Any
attempt to obstruct the spirit of the Constitution is highly diplorable. In this context the recent
development in West Bengal is highly condemnable. According to reports, the Editor of
Anandabazar Patrika Anirban Chattopadhyay, the largest-circulated Bangali daily,
has resigned, after the Kolkata Police summoned him and interrogated for a long time.
 
Ras Bihari President NUJ(I) said that Mamata Banerjee government is repeatedly
threatening media and harassing journalists. The present incident is a clear case of a threat to
media freedom in West Bengal. Summoning the Editor is nothing but aims at harassing and
intimidating the journalists and as such a clear violation of the press freedom. NUJ(I) urges
the highest authorities in the administration to take a serious note of such type of incidents
that are repeatedly happening in WestBengal so that journalists are provided a conducive
atmosphere to work without any threat and pressure.
 
Prasanna Mohanty Secretary General NUJ(I) said that such type of attempt to muzzle the
Press Freedom in West Bengal is highly deplorable. The present state Government of West
Bengal should refrain from such type of anti media stand and should allow the press to
function without any external pressure or threat.
