GUWAHATI: Electronic Media Forum Assam (EMFA), while condemning the outrageous behaviour of Parliamentarian Badruddin Ajmal on attending reporters in a media briefing at Mankachar locality of western Assam on Wednesday, insists on formulating a special protection law for scribes on duty across the country.
A number of news channel reporters were abused by the AIUDF chief and even threatened some of them. Ajmal reacted to a question raised by a reporter about his next course of the political movement, which ended up throwing the microphones in front of him with abusing languages targeting the reporter.
EMFA questioned that if a Lok Sabha member behaves in such ways, what is else is left in the world’s largest democracy. Ajmal could have avoided the question if it was too harsh for him. But his aggressive behaviour in a formal press conference only reflected his state of mind, which is unacceptable in a civilized society, it added. A number of FIRs have already been lodged against the lawmaker in different police stations across Assam and EMFA urges the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, also in charge of State home portfolio, to initiate for bringing the process to the logical end at the earliest.
