Notably, the AIUDF chief has invited ire from all quarters with strong protests across Assam over his outrageous behavior with an ETV journalist when asked a question during a press meet politely.
Even the Digital Media Journalists’ Association of Assam (DiMJAA) on Thursday lodged an FIR against AIUDF chief and Dhubri MP Maulana Badruddin Ajmal for his uncivilized and uncalled for behaviour with a journalist and threatening the scribe of dire consequences.
Ajmal threatened ETV’s South Salmara Mankachar reporter Kabir Mandal of dire consequences during a media interaction on Wednesday at Hatsingimari in South Salmara Mankachar district.
Following massive media outrage for misbehaving with a digital media journalist, All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badaruddin Ajmal on Thursday tendered his apologies, saying he respects media persons.
Ajmal tendered his apologies saying the Mankachar incident was an unintentional aberration.
