Minister for Communications and Information Technology Parbat Gurung has asserted that the mediapersons should play an important role to take forward the country on the right track.

Inaugurating the 21st annual general assembly of the Film Journalists Association Nepal here today, Minister Gurung urged the journalists to work in such a way that it would herald progressive changes in the country.

Appealing the journalists to focus on disseminating the news sending positive messages to society, Gurung said that the journalists should play an effective role to help develop a positive mental attitude in society.

The Minister also expressed his happiness over the expanding scope of the media sector and pointed out the need to protect and run the organization smoothly once the organization is established.

On the occasion, Minister Gurung launched the Welfare Fund introduced by the Association. The Association has initiated setting up a revolving fund worth Rs 2 million.

The event also saw honouring for founder presidents and former presidents of the Association by the Minister. They were Bidur Giri, Shanti Priya and Sandip Sapkota.
