FSNL family is making a small effort to honour this sense of service, he said.
Senior Journalist Alok Tiwari praised FSNL for continuing its operations even during the period of Covid-19. Journalism can become meaningful by connecting with social concerns and public interest. Meaningful journalism is the fulfilment of the responsibility of taking social concerns to the threshold of the system and bringing the public interest policies and schemes of the administration to the lowest strata of the society.
