Imphal Free Press publisher adjudged best by MPPDU
IMPHAL | Nov 7
Manipur Proletariat Peoples Democratic Union (MPPDU) observed the Great Bolsheviks Revolution of 1917 today at Manipur Press Club in programme where personalities in various fields were awarded for the courage and dedication to their works.
The ‘Best Publisher Award’ was given to the publisher of Imphal Free Press, Mayengbam Satyajit. News editor, Impact TV, Raj Nongthongbam; RTI activist, Wahengbam Joykumar, social worker, Telem Arun were also honoured with gifts and mementos.
Editor of Imphal Times, Rinku Khuman while speaking on the occasion, urged the people to discuss the present context of Manipur. People should realise that some of the capitalists are dominating the people and keeping them under pressure. Powerful persons put pressure on peoples’ work in the name of equality. And day to day livelihoods are being damaged for the sake of development, he said.
Such things are happening due to the capitalist class system which is emerging in the society, he stated. He further stated that as the political scenario has been changed, no one can raise questions. No one is able to tell the truth which is happening in front of them. It is not an easy task to face such capitalist class system. However, people should take a concrete form of decision to face such a system, he added.
He also spoke on the story of Great Bolsheviks revolution which resulted due to the change from proletariat to capitalist class, and subsequent destruction of different divisions of USSR.
Impact TV Editor, Raj Nongthongbam expressed his gratitude for the recognition by MPPDU. Other agencies have never selected him for such awards and he realised the reason why one should apply for award; it is the authority that should do the selection by recognising the services, he stated.
Presenting the voice of people is the duty of a journalist and he does not support any political party, he stated. And on his discussion hour, he raises questions on what the people would like to know and not under pressure from anybody, he added.
MPPDU president, N. Meghachandra Meitei talked on October Revolution and its relevance to the present day in Manipur society.
The occasion was also attended by SSUM president-in-charge, Soraijam Yaima Meetei, SWA secretary, Sarungbam Bijayanty, PoFM secretary, Lalitabi Chanu.
