Gwalior: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on November 27, 2021, said that the era of value-based, dedicated journalism has started in India.
He said: “Swadesh Newspaper has been doing this work for the last 50 years. National views and accurate news are the characteristics of this newspaper. Even in the difficult times of commercialistic and selfish-based journalism, Swadesh did not abandon the values of journalism.”
The Chief Minister was speaking at the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Swadesh Newspaper Group at Atal Vihari Vajpayee Auditorium of Jiwaji University, here.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Dr. Mohan Bhagwat also attended the programme.
Chouhan said that before independence the aim of journalism was how to make the nation independent.
“After independence, leftist ideology took a prominent place in journalism and nationalist journalism came to be considered as narrow and community-based. From the very beginning, Swadesh considered the national interest as paramount. Swadesh is the carrier of nationalist tradition in journalism in the true sense.”
Dr. Mohan Bhagwat said that our mind had been colonized during the time of the British.
“Today, there is an awakening of self-realization in India. India’s reputation is increasing all over the world. The world expects a new path from India. India will definitely fulfill this responsibility. India will become Vishwaguru and will lead the whole world,” the RSS Chief said.
Bhagwat added that today when the thinking of most of the countries of the world is based on consumption and selfishness, India is an integralist.
“India has a thought that the existence of the whole world is one. There is no alien for us, the whole world is one family. We have to achieve this global unity. India must remain Akatm, united and secure.”
The RSS Chief said that no culture can develop unless it recognizes its self.
“The British tried to distance us from our self but now we have recognized our self. Today there is an awakening of self-realization.”
