Rashtriya Hindi Mail hits news stands in Raipur

Raipur, Apr 3 (UNI) Rashtriya Hindi Mail today hit the news stands in the Chhattisgarh capital.
Union Steel and Mines Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Chief Minister Raman Singh, former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi, senior journalist Rahul Dev and the newspaper’s Chief Editor Vijay Kumar Das present at the launching ceremony here.
Reiterating his resolve for press freedom, the Chief Minister said the government had set up a high-power committee headed by Principal Secretary (Home Department) to protect journalists from unnecessary harassment, while discharging their duty.
In the wake of recent allegations of police excesses on several journalists in Bastar and the Editors Guild of India's suggestions, the Chief Minister said directives had been issued to police not to register any complaint against journalists without formal approval of the screening committee, having members from the media.
Dr Singh said the development map of tribal Bastar region had witnessed a vast change with the construction of school buildings, hospitals, bridges and other amenities in the region.
“Media needs to highlight the issues pertaining to 6,000 widows and 30,000 destitute in Bastar whose parents were brutally killed by the Naxals,” the Chief Minister pointed out and urged the Press to play a constructive role in bringing peace and rapid development in insurgency-affected Bastar.
