Shreyams Kumar slams Kerala Governor’s move against two news channels


All media institutions have the responsibility and right to disseminate news to the people. The governor should accept the media’s right to deliver news to people, similar to the governor’s right to speak his mind before the media, Shreyams Kumar said.

Kozhikode: Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) state president MV Shreyams Kumar here on Monday slammed Governor Arif Mohammed Khan over his move barring representatives of two news channels from his press meet. The governor’s action is not in keeping with the constitutional post he holds, Shreyams Kumar said.

“All media institutions have the responsibility and right to disseminate news to the public. The governor should accept the media’s right to deliver news to the people like his right to speak his mind before the media,” he said.

“The governor’s stance of barring certain media houses from reporting the press meet can only be seen as a dictator’s style. He is obliged to give an explanation over the move,” he added.
