Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala has urged the media to show maturity while breaking news in a highly competitive environment.
Inaugurating a media seminar, the senior Congress leader also batted for "self imposed regulations" for mediapersons to ensure that right information is disseminated through their medium.
"Mediapersons should show maturity and it is essential for establishing peace in society," he said last evening in the presence of senior Muslim League leaders, including Panakkad Hyderali Shihab Thangal and state Industries Minister P K Kunhalikkutty.
"Kerala media gives utmost importance to peace in society.
At the same time, a self-imposed regulation is required to ensure that no wrong news is delivered while competing for breaking news," Chennithala said.
The Home Minister also highlighted the role played by the media in "exposing" forces trying to undermine things envisaged in the Constitution.
