PTI stands out for credibility of its news: Yadav

Patna, Feb 7 (PTI) The country's premier news agency, Press Trust of India Ltd, stands out for credibility of its news at a time when other media have come under the scanner for various reasons, senior ministers in the Bihar government said today. "PTI stands out for its credibility of its news at a time the other segments of the media have come under the scanner for sensationalism and publication of unsubstantiated contents," Road Construction Minister Nand Kishore Yadav and the Food and Consumer Protection Minister Shyam Rajak said. Inaugurating the three-day Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Federation of PTI Employees' Unions here, they said the agency, with the largest network among all media entities, has endeared itself to readers and subscribers for fair reporting on all issues. Stating that Bihar was on the path of development under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after decades of backwardness for one reason or the other, the ministers urged PTI to highlight the achievements of NDA to all nooks and corners of the country and help change perception about the state and its people. They also sought the agency's cooperation for positively projecting Bihar's case for grant of special status by the Centre to fast track economic development and industrialization in the largely agrarian state. The AGM's organizing Chairman Sanjay Sinha welcomed the guests while the Federation of PTI Employees' Unions President John Gonsalves offered a vote of thanks. About 100 delegates of the Federation of PTI Employees' Unions from across the country arrived here to attend the AGM to discuss various issues related to the employees' welfare and the Majithia Wageboard.
