DIMAPUR, Oct 26 � Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang has assured to study the schemes implemented for welfare of journalists in other States and take appropriate steps for benefit of the employees of media houses of the State. He gave the assurance to a delegation of Nagaland Press Association (NPA) led by its president K Temjen Jamir who met him at his office in Kohima to apprise him about the immediate needs of the media fraternity in the State.

The NPA placed on record the commitments of the Nagaland Government for providing facilities for the working journalists and also impressed upon him that there are other issues relating to welfare of working and non-working journalists in the State which need attention.

Expressing gratitude to the State Government for taking up the earlier representation submitted by the NPA for Journalists Welfare Fund, the NPA, however, pointed out that the Journalists Welfare Fund is yet to be announced by the government.

The Association requested the Chief Minister to expedite the process of setting up the said fund, saying setting up of such a welfare fund would help the journalists as well as non-journalists in difficult times such as accidents, medical treatments and even help the family in case of death.

Stating that States like Manipur have announced a series of welfare schemes for the journalist community, the NPA felt that that Nagaland Government too can follow the same.
