AIMIM Chief Unveils TUWJF Diary 2023, Pledges Support for Urdu Journalists

AIMIM | Hyderabad, April 10 (Hydnow): AIMIM President & Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday released the Telangana Urdu Working Journalists’ Federation (TUWJF) Diary 2023, promising to address the issues faced by Urdu journalists, including the provision of double-bedroom housing initiatives.

During the event, TUWJF State President M.A. Majid, State General Secretary Syed Ghouse Mohiuddin, Federation Advisors, Vice Presidents, and other representatives submitted a memorandum to the Hyderabad MP.

The memorandum called for the restoration of the Mandal Level Accreditation Card Facility for Urdu journalists, the inclusion of an Urdu journalist in SMAC and DMAC, and the creation of a separate Urdu Journalist Category in media accreditation card committees.


Further requested to relax the 12-page rule for Urdu Major and Medium Newspapers and reducing it to 8 pages for the sanction of 2 State Level Accreditation Cards in districts.

Other demands included the allocation of housing sites to Urdu working journalists within GHMC limits, the nomination of an Urdu member to the Telangana Media Academy, and the allotment of 2,000 square yards of land to construct Urdu Journalists Bhavan in or around Hyderabad.

In response to these demands, Owaisi acknowledged their validity and pledged to bring the matters to the government’s attention to ensure their resolution.


He highlighted Urdu as the second official language of Telangana State and recognized the importance of the Urdu media, which is the largest after Telugu media, in delivering government programs and schemes to the Urdu-speaking population.

Owaisi also commented on G.O. 239, which creates a disparity between journalists based on language. He noted that until June 2016, all governments had treated Urdu journalists equally with their Telugu counterparts in various schemes. (Hydnow)
