Guwahati, May 7

Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) expresses grief at the demise of  senior journalist Padmeswar Chitrakar last evening (6 May 2020) in the city after suffering from a brief illness. The forum also wishes an early recovery to another city based scribe Mozahidul Haque, who is presently undergoing treatments at Dispur Hospital, Ganeshguri.

Chitrakar was working for a news channel NewsTime Assam till his demise. Earlier he was engaged with Dainandin Barta, Gana Adhikar, Dainik Janasadharan, Dainik Pratibedan, Aji, Jagrita, Amar Pragati, Saptahik Krishak Bondhu etc. Born at Simaluguri in Sivasagar district,

 Chitrakar left behind his wife Bina Chitrakar with a host of close relatives and well-wishers.

On the other hand, Haque started his journalism career with Sandhya Batori (Natun Dainik) and later worked for Asomiya Khabar for a longer period. He is suffering from nephrology related complications for some time. Financial limitation and ongoing lockdown have prevented him

from adopting next phases of treatment which is otherwise emerged very much essential.

“With Chitrakar, we have lost the third journalist to ailments in Assam (after Pranjal Hazarika from Jorhat and Bhaskar Dutta from Lakhimpur) during the nationwide lockdown,” said a statement issued by JFA president Rupam Barua and secretary Nava Thakuria adding that

media persons should not ignore necessary (healthcare) preventive measures for themselves along with their families.
