By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, April 10 � �To uproot corruption from our society, the common people would have to develop a strong feeling of hatred towards the corrupt practices in the society. Instead of blaming others for not doing enough to stop corruption, we need to contribute our bit to deal with the menace.�

While speaking as the chief guest of the 55th annual convention of the Assam Tribune Employees Union (ATEU) here today, educationist Hitesh Deka said this, further stressing the need of a strong public movement to stop corruption in the society.

Delving on a range of subjects, including the role of media in the society, Deka said that the newspapers of the Assam Tribune Group have a distinguished space in the hearts of the people of Assam and newspapers published by the group have been able to maintain their integrity.

Deka urged the ATEU to consider the proposal of instituting a national award in the name of Singhapurush Radha Govinda Baruah, an architect of modern Assam. He also asked to establish an information centre in Tribune premises to help students, which can also be a meeting point of the intellectuals, etc., and publication of more children�s literature by Sahitya Prakash.

Lauding the role of the Assam Tribune Group in implementing the recommendations of the Majithia Wage Board, noted trade union leader Basudev Kalita said that it has created an example before the entire country.

�The ATEU has its own distinguished space in the trade union movement of the State and it has always raised its voice against the plight of working class people. After the implementation of the new wage board in its own organization the union also strongly voiced its concern on the need to implement the wage board recommendations in the other newspaper organizations of the State,� said Kalita, speaking as the designated speaker of the occasion.

In the recently held election of the ATEU, Saifuddin Ahmed has been elected as the president, Siba Prasad Deka as the vice-president and Dugdha Ram Kalita as the general secretary of the union.
