Terming journalists as the mirror of the society, State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Md Ashraf Ali Khan Khasru today said they (journalists) have wider opportunities to highlight actual picture of the society through projecting objective reports or news in the media.
“The journalists can play an important role through presenting the fact for upholding the truth and keeping the people free from all sorts of confusion and propaganda” he said.
