The Prime Minister said the credibility that media enjoys today also enjoins upon them an immense responsibility. He praised Pudhari as one newspaper that had fulfiled this responsibility. The Prime Minister said criticism helps prevent mistakes, and helps truth to be brought out properly. He however said, today proper criticism does not happen, adding that allegations had replaced criticism. The Prime Minister said criticism required a thorough study, and had become a casualty of the fast-moving modern times. He said weakness of criticism, and an excess of allegations would weaken democracy. He said the need of the hour was healthy criticism, not allegations.
