Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerje on Saturday said that the state government is mulling the possibility of having its own newspaper and a television channel.

"Government work is not being highlighted properly. We need our own news channel and paper to inform the people," Banerjee said.

She said that the media was more focused on negative news about the government and did not highlight the good work done.

She said a booklet on a year's performance of the government would be released by the government.
