News Agencies | Updated on: 16 November 2017, 9:45 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 16 November greeted the media fraternity on the occasion of National Press Day and said that the role of the media in giving voice to the voiceless is commendable.

The Prime Minister took to his Twitter page and posted a series of tweets that said: "My greetings to all friends in the media on National Press Day. I appreciate the hardwork of our media, especially the reporters & camerapersons, who tirelessly work on the ground and bring forth various news that shapes national as well as global discourse."

 

National Press Day is symbolic of a free and responsible press in India. This was the day on which the Press Council of India started functioning as a moral watchdog to ensure that not only did the press maintain the high standards expected from this powerful medium but also that it was not fettered by the influence or threats of any extraneous factors.
