New info minister assures support for credible media outlets

New Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud yesterday said he would consider providing state assistance to good media outlets that cannot perform smoothly for various obstacles. “I'll look into how the state can assist the credible and good media in the truest sense, they either may be newspapers or televisions, that can't do good works for various barriers,” he said in his immediate reaction with reporters after taking oath as a minister at Bangabhaban.

The new minister said he has just taken oath and will talk to the officials concerned at his ministry for working out next steps to assist those media outlets. Dr Hasan Mahmud praised his predecessor Hasanul Haq Inu saying the immediate past information minister did a very good job during his tenure.

Noting that Inu has taken many initiatives, the new minister said he will implement Inu’s unfinished jobs as per directives of the Prime Minister.

Dr Hasan Mahmud, also Awami League’s Publication and Publicity Secretary, was elected MP from Chattogram-7 in the recent parliamentary elections held on December 30 last. He had been appointed state minister for foreign affairs in January 2009 in Sheikh Hasina's cabinet but six months later he was moved to the position of state minister for environment and forests.

In November 2011, he was promoted to the full minister of environment and forest and served in the position until the end of 2013.
