While addressing the function Punjabi University Patiala Journalism and Mass Communication department head Prof.Navjit Johal stressed the need for renaming the Press Council of India as Media Council in view of changing media scenario in the country .

The purview of media had become large after the introduction of television and new media and press had become a part of it.Therefore it is urgently required to rename the Press Council as Media council to bring electronic and new media under its purview and it should be given more powers so that media could be regulated constructively.

He also supported the views of Press Council of India chairman Justice Markanday Katju over the issue.

He also expressed his concern over the increasing commercialisation of the media and interference of media in politics in the country.

Prof.Johal also gave valuable tips about the news making to the journalists on the occasion.

While speaking on the occasion as chief guest Rupnagar SSP Inder Mohan Singh lauded the efforts of celebrating the National Press Day.He said that media was playing important role in a democracy and urged the media persons to shun negative tendencies.

Highlighting the importance of the day Rupnagar Press Club president Bahadurjeet Singh said that it is the day when Press Council of India was formed in the year 1966 as symbolic of free and responsible press in India.
