TNCC president K.S. Alagiri on Thursday requested Chief Minister M.K. Stalin to take steps to include all journalists in government welfare schemes.
In a statement, he said the government’s financial assistance to journalists during COVID-19 was only covering accredited journalists, those having cards issued by District Collectors and cards issued by the government.
This would not cover a large number of journalists, as every organisation has only a few such accredited journalists. Hence, the government can provide financial assistance to journalists either by accepting their office-issued ID cards or through the various journalists unions, he said.
