The journalist is playing a key role in the Corona crisis. Several state governments have declared journalists as frontline workers. This includes the Government of West Bengal, including Madhya Pradesh. Against this backdrop, such a demand has started in Maharashtra as well.
Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat has made a demand to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Declare journalists in the state as frontline workers, Thorat said. Journalists are always out of the house. Therefore, it is important to take care of their health. The families of the journalists could also be at risk, Thorat said.
