Office bearers of Press Club, Shimla led by its President Shri Dhananjay Sharma called on Governor Acharya Devvrat at Raj Bhavan, today and presented a memorandum regarding registration of FIR by Delhi Police against a news reporter for publishing news regarding breech of secrecy of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) scheme. They called it unfair, unjustified and a direct attack on the freedom of the press.

They said that the action of the UIDAI was uncalled for and a brazen attack on the freedom of press and condemn it and woo to fight it out. They added that it was not only an attempt to bully a newspaper but also beginning of a new trend which if not stopped could pose a great threat to freedom of press and democracy.
