External Influence on Media not Good for Society, says PM Narendra Modi on National Press Day

"Mahatma Gandhi had said uncontrolled writing can create huge problems but he had also said that external interference would wreak havoc. Controlling it (media) externally cannot be imagined" says Modi

November 16, 2016: On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke at the commemoration event of the National Press Day at Vigyan Bhavan in Delhi. Here’s what the PM said:

Freedom of speech
External control does not help in upholding freedom of expression. The press is responsible for upholding free-speech.

Government’s interference
Government should not do any interference. It is true that self-introspection is not easy. It is the responsibility of the PCI and those associated with the press to see to it that what appropriate changes you can make with time. Things do not change from external control.
