Minister for Urban Development Manjalamkuzhi Ali has called upon mediapersons to keep away from preventing development by creating controversies.

Inaugurating a seminar on ‘media and renaissance’ held at Tirur on Saturday ahead of the upcoming State conference of the Kerala Nadvathul Mujahideen, Mr. Ali said mediapersons should learn to view their job as service.

Kerala Nadvathul Mujahideen district secretary N. Kunhippa presided over the function.

E.T. Mohammed Basheer, MP, inaugurated a media workshop earlier. He said the media should promote righteousness and reject evil.
