Ground reporting in towns a bigger challenge : Abhisar Sharma

Sirsa, Nov 21 (UNI) Journalist Abhisar Sharma on Sunday said that the ground reporting in smaller towns was a bigger challenge.
He was speaking after being conferred with Ramchander Chhatrapati Samman 2021 here today.
Sharma said that in smaller cities powerful local politicians, socio-religious leaders keep journalists under pressure. He said that it was surprising that in such a situation a newspaper like ‘Poora Sach’ took powerful elements head on.
He said this also raises questions about the so called mainstream journalists.
Mr Swarn Singh Virk presided over the function and slain journalist’s son Anshul, journalist Baltej Pannu among others also spoke on the occassion.
Mr Chhatrapati had exposed Sirsa Dera Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who was convicted in the case three years back.
Chattrapati was attacked on October 21, 2002 and succumbed to bullet injuries four weeks later on November 21, 2002.
