Mumbai: The RedInk Awards for Excellence in Journalism, organised by the Press Club (Mumbai), were presented on Wednesday with the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana as the chief guest at the virtual event.
Danish Siddiqui was named the ‘Journalist of the Year’ and his award was received by his wife Rike. Prem Shankar Jha was awarded with the lifetime achievement award. He said, “It is a great honour to receive this award because it is not just from the readers, but from my peers, my fellow journalists. One thing that I always followed in my journalism career was that I never overruled my consciousness to protect my career. In this age of digitisation everyone can be tracked all the time; we journalists should be careful and fight for the truth.”
