Sub Committee Convenor Gupta during the discussion expressed his concerns over the need for authentic news backed by proper facts to be presented regarding any incident or event or conflict even from the remotest of areas in the State and elaborated on the role of the security forces in ensuring that the media is presented with all the proper facts and figures regarding any event and also the need to have a Nodal Officer who would be in-charge of disseminating information to the media fraternity.

He said that the sub-committee was visiting the state so that they could get a proper view of the ground realities in the state and to experience in person the problems or difficulties, if any, that the media might be facing in the state, only after which they would be working towards formulating certain guidelines to be followed by media and security forces on reporting from conflict areas.

DGP Nagaland John Longkumer updated the team on the current scenario in the State and expressed that the State was relatively peaceful and that there were hardly any issues of security or threat to the Media Fraternity in the State and emphasised largely on the point that the Naga people enjoyed their right to freedom of speech and expression to a greater extend as compared to people living in other parts of the country.

He further mentioned that the media personnel and the security forces share a very cordial relationship with each other and in fact help each other out on a very regular basis. Other Senior Police Officers also added to the point mentioned by the DGP by saying that the Media in the State was very independent and devoid of any influence by the Government or any other organization. The meeting concluded with the Sub-Committee members thanking the DGP Nagaland along with his Officers for their cooperation and providing valuable inputs which would help them in formulating proper guidelines that would benefit both parties, sources said.
