MLA, Sonari LAC, Dharmeswar Konwar, attended the function as the chief guest and in his speech, he emphasised the role of journalists in enlightening people with new ideas for developing their lives. He added that while journalists have the responsibility to publish the truth, the dissemination of wrong or fabricated news can seriously harm individuals and society.
