Panaji, May 1 (IANS) Journalists should be objective and promote positivity in the society, said Goa Governor Mridula Sinha on Tuesday.
Speaking at the first Devashri Narad Journalist Award function at Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday, Sinha said: "Journalists should adhere to the norms and be very objective about journalism in society where there is decline and eruption of negativity."
She said the journalists should help restore peace and stability in the society and thus create a positive atmosphere.
The event was organised by the Vishwa Samvaad Kendra, Mumbai, to belatedly mark the birth anniversary of the "first reporter from Hindu Mythology Devashri Narad".
"Journalists have to play multi-fold role towards the society. They should not forget their role towards the betterment of the society," Sinha added.
Former Editor of Marathi daily Navprabha, Suresh Walve, and Assistant Editor of Marathi daily Lokmat, Mayuresh Walve, were conferred with Devashri Narad Journalist Award 2018 at the ceremony.
