ITANAGAR, Oct 26:  Arunachal Press Club, Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalists and Arunachal Electronic & Digital Media Association jointly observed the second death anniversary of  senior journalist late Taro Chatung  at Press Club today.
Chatung, the pioneer of electronic media and a state gold medal awardee passed away on 26 October, 2019 due to cancer at TRIHMS, Naharlagun.
Highlighting Chatung's contribution to the state media, APC President Dodum Yangfo appealed to the young journalists to take inspiration from the life of the late journalist. Yangfo said the present journalists should also learn to ask straight questions during work and be rational in their reporting.
“Being rational in reporting was one of the best journalistic approaches which Taro Chatung had within him during his entire life. Therefore, we should imbibe this quality and pass it on to the next,” he said.  
Yangfo also said that one does not require a Journalism degree to be a journalist but must have a basic idea of media ethics. Language and accent should never be a barrier in reporting, especially in the present era of digitalization, he said. On the sidelines, he also appealed to the state government to provide a job to a member of late Chatung's family at the earliest, which was one of the demands of the state media fraternity to the government for the last two years.

Also motivating the young journalists of the state to carry forward the legacy of Chatung, APUWJ President Amar Sangno said that a journalist should be dedicated and passionate about his profession. Chatung has been and will always be an inspiration to many of the journalists, he said.
Among others, , Advisor to APC, Taba Ajum,, APUWJ - General Secretary Ranju Dodum, AEDMA Advisor Mukul Pathak and members shared anecdotes and their experience with late Chatung.
Earlier,  two minute silence was also observed as a mark of respect.
