As a Journalist

He was persuaded by Shri Dinanath Mishra, the erstwhile editor of Patna Edition Hindi Daily Nav Bharat Times, to enter into journalism and offered to work as sub editor cum reporter under him. He accepted this offer with an amendment that instead of joining Nav Bharat Times as an staffer he would contribute the paper as a freelance journalist. Mr. Mishra readily accepted the suggestions and gave ample opportunity to work with him as a freelancer. For a long period up to 1993 he worked as accredited freelance journalist with Nav Bharat Times besides contributing to other newspaper as well.

He also launched a monthly magazine namely "Krishi Bihar" to highlight the problems of farmers and farm sector in Bihar specially the movement of "Sone Anchal Kisan Sangharsh Samiti" which was a torch bearer organisation to fight for the right of Sone command area farmers for their due share on the water of Sone river and injustice made to them in the Bansagar Agreement as well as its implementation on Sone river waters between the government of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. This problem he raised in 1982 as the then general secretary of the Bihar unit of the Janata Party on appropriate forums and after a long struggle filed a public interest litigation in Patna high court in May 1993 which was admitted and now has been listed for hearing after 17 years.
