Rajya Sabha Member and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy lashed out at the Congress for critising Goods and Service Tax and questioned why the party approved passing of the bill if they were against it.
Swamy was speaking to media persons on the side-lines of the ‘Devarshi Narad Journalism Awards’ distribution ceremony held yesterday evening at Fergusson College in Pune .
The awards are given jointly by the Vishwa Samwad Kendra and Deccan Education Society, which runs Fergusson College, to senior and young journalists, photographers and cartoonists working in mainstream and social media. Swamy felicited Bhau Torsekar, Parag Potdar, Rajendra Sarag and Devidas Deshpande for their contribution in journalism.
Swami stressed that there is a need for professional journalism courses on the lines of IITs and IIMs. “Rules should be formulated in such a way that journalism should emerge as a profession and only those who have a degree in journalism should be allowed to enter into journalism,” he said.
