Lokmat Samachar launches seventh edition from MP

Lokmat Media, publisher of Lokmat Samachar, has made its entry into Madhya Pradesh with its seventh edition in Chhindwara. The newspaper first appeared in 1989 in Nagpur, and was thereafter launched in Aurangabad, Akola, Kolhapur, Jalgaon and Pune in that order.

Lokmat Samachar’s Chhindwara edition will have 12 pages and has been launched with a cover price of Rs 3.

The maiden edition of Lokmat Samachar in Madhya Pradesh was launched by Union Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath. While launching the paper, Nath said, “While Bhopal cannot become Chhindwara, Chhindwara can become Bhopal. Chhindwara has changed a lot over the years, with its citizens changing their thinking and redefining their concept of development.”

Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, who was also present at the launch function, stressed the need for media to maintain its neutrality and impartiality and added that both media persons and politicians carry a heavy responsibility on their shoulders. He expressed concern over a section of the media resorting to unscrupulous means to increase circulation. “It is the prime duty of the media to inform the policies and programmes of the government to the masses,” Chavan added.

A seminar on ‘Role of politics and media in the development of common man’ was also held at the launch function. Also present on the occasion were Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ravishankar Prasad, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Lokmat Media and Rajya Sabha member Vijay Darda, Maharashtra School Education Minister Rajendra Darda, Executive Editor of Aaj Tak Punyaprasun Vajpayee, Managing Editor of IBN7 Ashutosh, Editorial Director and Joint Managing Director, Rishi Darda, Executive Director Karan Darda, Lokmat Samachar Editor Vikas Mishra, Product Head Mateen Khan, and Resident Editor of Lokmat Samachar (Chhindwara edition) Devesh Thakur, among others.
