The female journalists of Manipur are well talented in terms of their skills and writings and have been taking a big role as a fourth estate of the democracy, said president of AMWJU W Shyamjai while briefing to the media.

During the trip, the team will be exchanging their experiences with the members of Sikkim Journalists’ Union and reporting on the initiatives taken up by the Sikkim government in all aspects, including education and agriculture sectors, he informed.

Such an initiative for women empowerment will be a great opportunity for female journalists to get exposure by interacting with people from outside the state, said Minister Khemchand.
