Media body seeks new regulation
The Andaman Nicobar Media Federation (ANMF) has requested Lt. Governor of Andaman and Nicobar Islands to direct authorities concerned to make a “Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)” for dissemination of correct information at the time of any crisis or disaster by all local media and refrain from spreading rumour. In a letter to Lt. Governor, A&N Island, Raj Niwas, the president of ANMF K Ganeshan said that members of ANMF are disappointed that the administration did not involve local media in dissemination of information on cyclone ‘Pabuk’.
