16th November – National Press Day
Without Media our lives would have been very simple, no action, no drama, and absolutely no sharing of information on day to day basis. Today, we would like to thank Press all over India for making us aware of daily activities.
Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu during an event on #NationalPressDay, in Delhi: In the past, news used to be news, never it was interpreted or misinterpreted, now news and views are being clubbed together, that is the problem. pic.twitter.com/EMe2X3hPbS— ANI (@ANI) November 16, 2019
On the occassion of #NationalPressDay – greetings to the Media fraternity. Press freedom is essence of a vibrant democracy. This was trampled upon by the #Congress during emergency. We are ensuring full freedom to the press. pic.twitter.com/k3C8Hv9eHn— Prakash Javadekar (@PrakashJavdekar) November 16, 2019

Blatant suppression, censorship, blackmail, arrests, draconian ordinances, arson, and unremitting attacks on the Freedom of the Press under @INCIndia. A comprehensive, crowdsourced thread. #NationalPressDay https://t.co/3nPjfgR38f— Anand Ranganathan (@ARanganathan72) November 16, 2019
