Dhaka Union of Journalists (DUJ) on Thursday protested in the strongest possible terms against removal of journalists at some newspapers and television channels amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The organisation has also called upon the government to step in to find a way out of the situation.

The plea came from a meeting of its executive body at National Press Club with its President Quddus Afrad in the chair, said a press release.

The journalists’ organizations also called for finding an immediate solution to the internal problems at different newspapers. Besides, membership of Lupa Talukder was suspended unanimously for tarnishing the image of the DUJ.
