The former Chairman of the Legislative Council V.R. Sudarshan has stressed the role of media in creating a healthy society. He was speaking at a function organised by Manwantara Prakashana here on Tuesday to felicitate Karnataka Sahitya Academy award-winning writer Kotiganahalli Ramaiah. Media should focus on the problems of the people instead of floating and planting stories praising or maligning a few people, Mr. Sudarshan said. Former Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar urged media persons to fight corruption in society. — Staff Correspondent
