Bhopal: Standing by its motto of “Jahah Tak Bharat, Waha Tak Bharat24”, the second correspondents’ conclave of Bharat24 was held in Bhopal of Madhya Pradesh. Prior to this, the first such meet was organised in Raipur in Chhattisgarh. Addressing the gathering during the meet, Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker Girish Gautam said, “Despite being a national Hindi news channel, I appreciate the effort of “Bharat 24” to put its correspondent till every Assembly constituency and carry the news of people sitting till the last ends of the States on the channel.” Meanwhile Bharat24’s CEO and Editor-In-Chief Dr Jagdeesh Chandra said, “We want to make Bharat24 the channel of the country and not just of one region.”

Dr Jagdeesh Chandra said in his welcome address that this channel is as national as it is regional. Chandra assured everyone that the channel will take the public utility and welfare schemes of the state government to the common people. Meanwhile, Assembly Speaker Girish Gautam said that in the current lack of credibility of news, he expected credibility from the channel. “Channels should show such news which has a positive impact on the society.

Sharma expressed hope that the channel will engage in value based journalism. Meanwhile, Managing Editor of Bharat24 Ajay Kumar said that every person associated with the news is a correspondent, be it in any position.
