Former JK Congress chief and senior party leader Prof Saifuddin Soz Thursdaypitched for setting up Press Club in Srinagar on the pattern of Jammu.In a statement to KNS, Soz said the absence of Press-Club at Srinagar has created a difficulty not only for the general run of the journalists, but also for political and social activists for communication of ideas.“This facility has been provided by the respective State Governments in all cities and bigger townships, through-out India and, perhaps, Srinagar (Kashmir) is the only place in India where there is no Press-Club,” he said.He said that while the Press Club in Jammu is a great relief to all political leaders and social activists for interacting with the press but as for Srinagar, he has been hearing for the last two decades that this facility would be provided by the State Government but it never materialized.“I strongly urge the government to provide funds for construction of a Press-Club at Srinagar at an appropriate place and, in the meantime, allot a house around the Press Colony to serve as Press-Club at Srinagar,” he said, while hoping that such an action will be taken without any further loss of time.
