PIL In High Court Seeking Aid For Journalists

The PIL urged the HC to direct the state government to provide financial assistance to the journalists covering the Covid-19 by putting their lives at risk.
Hyderabad | 12th May 2020
A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Telangana High Court seeking a direction to the state government to extend financial assistance of Rs 30,000 to every journalist discharging their duty and unable to meet their day-to-day needs due to the ongoing lockdown.

The petition was filed by senior advocate Rapolu Bhaskar.

A division bench of the HC heard the case through video conference.

Arguing the case on behalf of the petitioner, senior counsel Macharla Rangaiah urged the HC to issue directions to the state government to provide financial assistance to the journalists covering the news related to Covid-19 by putting their lives at risk.

He also urged the HC to direct the government to provide health insurance and free masks and medical kits to all the journalists.

Following this, the division bench issued orders to the Principal Secretary of the Department of Information and Public Relations of the state government, and the Press Academy of the state, and asked them to file a counter on the issue.

It later adjourned the case for two weeks.
