Free press makes for a stronger democracy: PM Modi on World Press Freedom day

Applauding "tireless work" on World Press Freedom Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the multiplicity of ideas and human expression makes us more vibrant as a society and a free press makes for a stronger democracy. 

"A free press makes a stronger democracy! Today on #WorldPressFreedomDay, let us reaffirm our commitment towards steadfastly supporting a free press. It is the multiplicity of ideas and human expression that makes us more vibrant as a society," he said on Twitter.

The prime minister applauded all those who have been working tirelessly to uphold the freedom of press. 

"I applaud all those who have been working tirelessly to uphold freedom of press. It is due to these countless women and men that the spirit of a free press is significantly enhanced," he added in his second tweet.

In another tweet, he said, "I would once again like to appreciate the proactive role of everyone on social media for their commendable work towards safeguarding the freedom of press and expression."

The United Nations General Assembly had declared May 3 as World Press Freedom Day to raise awareness about freedom of press.
