The Indian Newspaper Languages Association (ILNA) elected its new executive body at its recently held 71st annual general meeting. More than 90 ILNA members from across the country participated in the meeting.
Paresh Nath of Delhi Press has been re-elected as President of ILNA for the third consecutive year. Vijay Bondria has been elected as Election Officer of ILNA.
Speaking after the elections, Nath said, “In our last tenure, we had opposed the wrong policies of the government. We focussed mainly on the hike in freight charges of particular magazines.
