It is shocking to learn that press has been reportedly barred from covering assembly proceedings starting tomorrow, CPI (M) leader and MLA Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami said adding that barring media from covering proceedings on important public issues amounts to depriving people of information.

"The ban on press is draconian and highly unacceptable, which will encourage rumour mongering and is bound to prove counter-productive," he said and added that in the interest of the assembly session, media must be allowed to cover the proceedings.

He urged upon the Hon'ble Speaker to intervene in the matter and allow press coverage of proceedings in transparent manner consistent with the past practice.
