Thiruvananthapuram | Kerala Union of Working Journalists (KUWJ) has urged Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President V M Sudheeran to take action against the personnel staff of Dr Shashi Tharoor MP for their alleged attempt to intimidate mediapersons here yesterday.
In a press release here, KUWJ President K Premnath said a reporter of a television channel was pushed away by the staff of the former union minister Tharoor when the journalists asked questions to him, which was not of his liking. Tharoor also termed journalists as ‘liars.’
In protest against the misbehavior by the Thiruvananthapuram MP and his staff, the mediapersons here took out a protest march to his office last night. Meanwhile, a press conference, called by the office of Tharoor, was cancelled this morning.
