Electronic News Media Association (ENMAS) & Haryana Union of Journalists (HUJ) celebrated National Press Day at Hotel Jai Vilas today. Mr. Pankaj Yadav IAS (Officiating Deputy Commissioner, Sirsa) presided over a luncheon mini conference.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Yadav said that Press and Media has given new directions to nation as well as the world. He said that apart from the 3 pillars of democracy, the legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary, The Press & Media is being rightly pronounced as the uncrowned fourth pillar of the democracy. Its role in helping to maintain democracy cannot be denied. Where ever there is freedom to press the quality of democracy keep on improving. However Mr. Yadav expressed that if all these pillars start working in tandem in reality then India could perhaps leap forward at a greater pace. He even quoted the opening words of the Preamble to constitution of India, “We the people of India…….” These are the golden lines that still hold the key to a better India. [He was obviously latently referring to society mostly giving credit to either Judiciary or the Press only] Mr Yadav greeted the press and media persons on the National Press Day Occasion and very warmly said that such quick take conferences should become a regular feature. He assured that District Administration shall as always co-operate for such events. He praised the Sirsa media for its positive journalism compared to many places elsewhere.

Mr. Ved Goyal president ENMAS, Mr. Inder Mohan Sharma patron and S. Baljeet Singh president HUJ thanked the chief guest and all attendees.
When Senior Journalist Dr. OP Bansal of Hindustan Times and PTI rose to spoke, contrary to assumptions of a serious oration he took it in lighter vein and announced that as we are celebrating Press Day symbolic to freedom of the Press, on of our Journalist Mr. Baljeet Singh happily embraced shackles of Ghulami by getting married on this day!

Mr. Arun Mehta, Mr. Soraj Bhardwaj, Mr. Uttam Singh Grover, Mr. Amit Tiwari, Mr. Dinesh Kaushik, Mr. Pawan Kumar, Mr. S.

About National Press Day (Sirsa News Supplement)

National Press Day – The 16th of November – 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. Though there are several Press or Media Councils world over, the Press Council of India is a unique entity in as-much-as this is the only body to exercise an authority even over the instruments of the state in its duty to safeguard the independence of the press.
Recommending the establishment of Press Council in 1956 the Ist Press Commission had concluded that the best way of maintaining professional ethics in journalism would be to bring into existence a body with statutory authority, of people principally connected with industry whose duty it would be to arbitrate. To this end the Press Council of India was established and the body that was evolved since November 16, 1966 has not belied the objective.
November 16 therefore personifies a responsible and free press in the country. All those who cherish it, so commemorate the day. The National Press Day on November 16 every year is commemorated in befitting manner by the Council. Since the year 1997 following Seminars have been organized by the Press Council on occasion of National Press Day (November 16).
