Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Union of Journalists (HUJ) has described the attack on mediapersons, who were discharging their legitimate duties on the Tank Bund on Thursday as “unreasonable”.
In a pressnote here on Friday, the HUJ vice-president, Mr Ch. Vijayananda Rao, stated that the attack on the media personnel covering the Million March on Thursday was unreasonable and highly deplorable. He also stated that destroying the cameras of lensmen and throwing them into the lake was unfortunate.
He said that the media representatives were discharging their legitimate duties to cover the proceedings of Million March like the Telangana activists who were agitating for carving out of separate Telangana State. Stating that attack on mediapersons by the agitators has become a routine affair, he urged the government to identify the culprits and bring them to book. (NSS)
