The workshop was organised on the topic ‘Using Open Data for Creating and Presenting News Stories.’
“Data based stories are somehow based on facts especially when the figures are provided by the relevant and authentic agency,” said Soni.
However, consultant Upendra Singh and former HOD Department of Political Science, University of Jammu, Rekha Choudhary, also spoke on the occasion.
Jamwal, later speaking to media said that data availability was already there but it’s utilisation in a right perspective matters a lot.
Later a question-answer session was organised on which Deepti Soni replied to the queries raised by the journalist fraternity.
