Creating fake news has become an industry: writer

Mysore/Mysore: Arguing that creating fake news has become an industry, lead writer Prof. Rajendra Chenni lamented that civil society does not question fake news.

He was delivering the farewell speech at the two-day state-level seminar “Swatantra Amrutha Mahotsavada Nadige, Prabuddha Bharatada Kadege” organized by Dr. BR Ambedkar Research and Extension Center of Mysore University at Vishwagnani Auditorium of Manasagangothri campus here on Saturday.

Attacking NEP-2020 (National Education Policy), Professor Channi alleged that it was just a new form of ‘Manusmriti’. Arguing that the aspirations of the majority population have not been met even after 75 years of independence, he maintained that all the hopes the country had at the time of independence have been dashed with the majority population still struggling for their rights.

Professor TR Maruthi, in his address, said those talking about changing the constitution seem to have no idea of ​​alternatives. It is foolish to talk about changing the Constitution in the absence of ideas, he added.

The director of the center, Dr. S. Narendrakumar, Prof. Dr. J. Somashekar, Prof. Shabbir Mustafa, Prof. R. Indira and others were present.
