Social Justice Department holds workshop for journalists.
“State Government and Centre implement various welfare schemes for deprived and neglected sections of society but many schemes do not reach the doors of these needy people for lack of awareness. Journalists should come forward and create awareness about the welfare schemes so that the very objective is achieved,” urged Gajanan Nimdeo, Chief Editor of Tarun Bharat while inaugurating a workshop of scribes. The workshop for journalists, organized by Social Justice Department, was held on Friday. President of Nagpur District Marathi Journalists Association Dilip Hiwarkar presided over the workshop while Regional Deputy Commissioner R D Atram, District Planning Officer Krushna Firke, District Information Officer Anil Thakre were chief guests.
“Bharat Ratna Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar strived hard in his entire life for providing justice to weaker sections of society. He struggled for welfare of the poor. He stuck to his principle of equal justice to all while writing the Indian Constitution. Entire world respects the Indian democracy because of this aspect,” said Nimdeo in his speech.
The Regional Deputy Commissioner R D Atram threw light on various schemes being implemented by the Social Justice Department and urged the journalists to remove the misconceptions about the Department and portray the real picture by their positive reporting.
President of Nagpur District Marathi Journalists Association Dilip Hiwarkar, District Planning Officer Krushna Firke, District Information Officer Anil Thakre and others also addressed the workshop and assured cooperation in creating awareness about the welfare schemes being implemented by Social Justice Department.
At the outset, the guests garlanded the portraits of Mahatma Fuley, Shahu and Dr Ambedkar and paid their tributes to the leaders.
The workshop was attended by over 50 journalists from Nagpur and rural areas.
