Rajouri, March 18: Additional Superintendent of Police, Rajouri, Vivek Shekhar Sharma on Saturday said media in the border districts of Jammu & Kashmir must crosscheck facts with proper analysis before publishing the news. 
“Breaking news syndrome sometimes has a cascading effect which can prove harmful to the security of the state,” he said while stressing that media must call for the queries, especially during sensitive situations, and must not publish the news in the real-time for monetary gains that can have negative repercussions.
The officer was speaking at Press Information Bureau (PIB’s) media workshop ‘Vartalap’ Jammu which was aimed at “building a direct interface between PIB and the journalists working at district and sub-district levels in district Rajouri”. The workshop, organized at Dak Bungalow Rajouri, was inaugurated by Deputy Commissioner Rajouri, Vikas Kundal in presence of Joint Director, Central Bureau of Communication (CBC) J&K, Ghulam Abbas and Deputy Director PIB Jammu, Ayushi Puri.
In his inaugural address, DC Rajouri said media being the fourth pillar of democracy acts as the eyes and ears of the government and such coordination is essential to obtain necessary feedback and address the concerns regarding the implementation of the schemes and programmes of the government at the ground level.
Ayushi Puri, in her address, said that media is the most powerful tool for the dissemination of information. Besides focusing on investigative journalism, media should also focus on development journalism, she added. She later stressed on media ethics and a code of conduct for journalists before reporting on various issues.
“Media units of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting in Jammu and Kashmir are playing a pivotal role in the dissemination of information of the government schemes and programmes at the grassroots level through different programs organized throughout Jammu and Kashmir by PIB, CBC, AIR and DD,” said Ghulam Abbas.
District Information Officer, Rajouri, Narinder Raina also stressed that the media code of conduct for journalists must be kept in mind before reporting on an event.
