Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee hailed the contributions media on the World Press Freedom Day which falls on Wednesday. She said in her statement that the press and the media are important pillars of a democracy. The pen is mightier than the sword.
Even television channels and the digital media have all become powerful tools of communication all over India and the world.
Nowadays in our country it has been observed that the media cannot play a completely impartial and effective role because of the political circumstances. In a democratic setup, this is not acceptable to the people.
Freedom of the press must continue. News must always be impartial and bold, so the reader, viewer, internet user always gets justice. This is freedom.
We congratulate the press and the media. Let them hold their heads high and do their profession proud.
