Amid the global criticism and allegations of silencing media in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that Indian language journalism has played a key role in tradition, culture, freedom struggle and the development journey. 

 Modi while inaugurating the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Agradoot group of newspapers said that Assam has played a key role in the development of language journalism in India as the state has been a very vibrant place from the point of view of journalism. 

Journalism started 150 years ago in the Assamese language and kept on getting stronger with time, he added.

The Prime Minister said when there is dialogue, there is a solution. It is through dialogue that possibilities expand. 

Therefore, along with the flow of knowledge in Indian democracy, the flow of information is also flowing continuously. Agradoot is part of that tradition, he said.

Modi said the positive role played by our media in campaigns like the Swachh Bharat Mission is appreciated all over the country and the world even today. “Similarly, you can become a participant in the country’s resolutions in the Amrit Mahotsav," he said.

“Well-informed, better-informed society should be the goal for all of us, let us all work together for this," the Prime Minister concluded.
