Education Minister Fails to reach press meet on time
Journalists on Tuesday decided to boycott a press meet organized by the new Education Minister Siddhartha Bhattacharya in Guwahati after he failed to turn up on time.
The press meet was supposedly organized in the Conference Hall of the Minister at D-Block, 4th Floor of Janata Bhawan regarding the introduction of Science Stream in different colleges of Assam at 10:30 am. But even after more than an hour passed, the Education Minister failed to turn up at the venue and no intimation regarding this was also made to the journalists present at the place to cover the press meet.
Journos boycott meet
Journalists belonging to print and web media thus decided to boycott the press meet to highlight the issue right before the education Minister and the Chief Minister of Assam.
“Being late for an hour or so has become the new normal of the new government,” said a senior journalist.
It must be noted that this is not the first time that the representatives of the new BJP led government in Assam have failed to turn up on time at their own scheduled time for various events.
