He said that today though digital media has gained popularity, print media has a unique place. He said that millions of readers still read the daily news papers with editorials and articles. Therefore, it may be attributed that print media has the power to interfere in the policy making of the country.

The people associated with the print media should also take the responsibility to make it interesting for the young generation.
