Journalist body opens legal cell to help sacked Hindustan Times employees


New Delhi: The Indian Federation of Working Journalists (IFWJ) has condemned the decision of the Hindustan Times Management to close down the publication centers of Bhopal, Indore, Ranchi, Kanpur, Allahabad, Varanasi and Kolkata and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the matter.
